An even greener dear green place

I love the idea that my home city of Glasgow, the “dear green place”, is going to get a little greener.  That’s not a theological statement but an environmental one.  Apparently every school in Glasgow is going to get an allotment so pupils can grow their own food and learn about healthy eating first hand.  But it’s even more important than that. There was a time when “dig for victory” was a statement of defiance against a human enemy.  These days the problem is not a warring nation but a warming world. And every little helps.  We need carrot crunching as well as carbon counting to help save our planet and I am proud that my city is leading the way.
