  1. Hi Lorraine,
    My name is Monica Kelly and I am currently a graduate student with the university of Western Ontario. I am living in Toronto for the summer and am conducting research on youth, civic involvement, and urban gardening in Parkdale. I recently picked up your book "City Farmer" and I am finding it very insightful in terms of understanding gardening in an urban context. I would like to very much have tea with you and hear your thoughts on my research if you are interested. You can reach me at mkelly87@uwo.ca.
    PS
    I apologize for the unconventional way I am contacting you, but I could not find your email address so I am hoping you check your blog somewhat regularly :)

    Sincerely,
    Monica
