CS: I love that one of House Beautiful's "12 to Watch" choices was Taja Sevelle, who started Urban Farming. How do you see her organization, and small-scale urban farming, fitting into the world of design and House Beautiful?
I so applaud Taja’s Urban Farming programs. While we tend to focus on the design of our homes, it’s important not to lose sight of our houses and the environments they’re located in. Good design should permeate our lives — from the clothes we wear to the rooms we live in to the communities we call home. Gardens both private and public are important — and her gardens are also giving so much healthy produce back to the community.
