Laurus nobilis grows beautifully in our climate, it makes a great container plant too, and will provide your kitchen with fresh bay without umbellulone, which is why Calif Bay is commonly called 'headache tree'

Nothing against the event or locavore idea, but in my experience California Bay is not good to cook with. It is nothing like the Mediterranean standard, laurus nobilis, and tastes like a bit of Carmex was added to the dish. Here's one of the uses of California Bay from the livingwild.org website: "Steep [California] Bay leaves overnight and strain into an empty spray bottle. Share it as an aromatic room spray or natural house cleaner."

> "How do the organic farmers deal with this issue?" They have much lower yields, and charge a much higher price.-True, but you might be surprised sometimes how small the price difference really is. And it sure beats sterilizing the soil on a regular basis.

There's a difference between graffiti art and tagging, sometimes a gray area between these things to be sure, but a difference nonetheless. Where I live, it's always just tags -- initials and street names, no art whatsoever. There are lots of us locally who work to clean it up, both paid and volunteer. That work is much appreciated, we have a different vision of our neighborhood than the taggers.

I don't know anything about this proposal, but I lived for years on a tenth of an acre and we produced more food than we knew what to do with, and had plenty of space to park and play besides.
