Seeding a community with new food choices

THANKS TO Lawrence Harmon for his coverage of the Dorchester Community Food Co-op (“Seeds for a Dorchester food co-op,” Op-ed, Dec. 22). Harmon depicts the challenges in finding local fixes to a broken food system, and celebrates the most notable achievement to date: the incredible growth of community in the inner city.

Such journalism is commendable after the Globe’s recent “68 Blocks” series on the Bowdoin-Geneva neighborhood, which, although poetic, framed the neighborhood in terms of violence. Community members lament this “eye of the storm” coverage — depicting an island amidst hail of bullets — even as their own projects to revolutionize the urban economy often go unnoticed .
