One of our Choose GOOD partners has been receiving heaps of hard-earned, positive press. Slow Food, whose name distills its mission statement into two tiny syllables, has turned the lawns of San Francisco's City Hall into food-bearing gardens with its Victory Garden planting party on July 12, 2008.

If you missed out on the planting, fret not. The garden will be operating through September 21, at which point there will be a community harvest (and food will be donated to those who need it most). Prior to that, the first harvest will be held on Labor Day Weekend, when Slow Food Nation's main event makes like a tree and leaves its heart in San Francisco.
