City Cropper

A woman waters her crop of vegetables in the shadow of the rail/road bridge at Dongjak, while two gentlemen look on. This little patch of earth is sandwiched in between the bridge, a construction site, a canal and the Han River. I have seen other such patches beside railway lines and I admire the resourcefulness of the folks who turn these wasted little bits of grubby ground into green and productive gardens.

We need these creative people who make good use of the land. Especially in a earth-friendly way.

In the world so dependent on commercial large farms, this is a good example of how people can make good use of what's available to them to produce what they need themselves. Salute to those people.
