Rebuilding Place in the Urban Space

"A community’s physical form, rather than its land uses, is its most intrinsic and enduring characteristic." [Katz, EPA] This blog focuses on place and placemaking and all that makes it work--historic preservation, urban design, transportation, asset-based community development, arts & cultural development, commercial district revitalization, tourism & destination development, and quality of life advocacy--along with doses of civic engagement and good governance watchdogging.

EdibleDC magazine inaugural issue

Some people might remember the old EdibleChesapeake magazine, which published 4 issues/year and covered food issues in Maryland, Northern Virginia, and DC.  It closed up a few years ago. 

More recently, Flavor Magazine, not affiliated with the EdibleCommunities group, took up the banner of covering what they call the "Capital Foodshed."  I object to this term a bit, because that is an artificial focus on the end user market, which doesn't organize how food is produced and the foodways of the region.  The magazine tends to cover issues in Virginia and DC, and not so much Maryland.

Edible Blue Ridge covers Virginia, and now EdibleDC covers DC.  It was just released this past weekend, and you may be able to find copies here and there--it's distributed for free at present, and typically is available from places that advertise.

I picked up a copy at Trohv, the housewares and home furnishings store in Takoma DC.

The launch issue's content focuses on profiles of various people seen as leaders in the local food community, from restauranteurs to advocates.
