Drop that Western Bacon Cheeseburger, San Franciscans. Slow Food Nation may be rolling ever so slowly into town, but the dirt was flying fast at Civic Center Plaza this morning, where Alice & Company tore down on City Hall's lawn in preparation for the Slow Food Victory Garden. In the spirit of recycling, the "grass carpet" is being transplanted to other, grass-needy parts of the city. The veggies, saturated with sun, water, and good old-fashioned love, will eventually be harvested and donated to people with "limited access to healthy, organic produce." That is, if those with "limited access" who tend to frequent City Hall's lawn don't help themselves to a little Victory salad.
