How A “Mad Viking” Saved A Crime-Ridden Park In SF

“There’s some good information about square-foot gardening in this neat video about Peter Vaernet, the “Mad Viking” who turned a beautiful 7-acre park from a crime nest into a terrific multi-use community area.  Vaernet said one of the ways he got rid of the criminal element was by bringing lots of women and children into the park. The criminals were too embarrassed to behave badly in front of women and children, he explained, so they went away.”  – Via BoingBoing.net
