In this month's issue of Food, Nutrition & Science: The Cottage Food Bill Clears First Hurdle in California, Introducing The Edible Forest,  Salmon Farmer and more.

On April 17, 2012, the California Homemade Food Act (AB 1616) - more commonly known as the California Cottage Food Bill - passed the California Assembly Committee on Health, bringing small food operators in California one step closer to being able to legally provide their communities with healthy, home-grown food products.

In a second story, once considered novel, community gardens are now an everyday part of the urban food landscape. Mini city farms are flourishing too, popping up everywhere - on the rooftops of business, in backyards, in school fields and in parks. Now, some locavores are taking the concept a step further, planting edible forests in public spaces for all to enjoy.

And in a third story, we talked with John Love, 24 years old,  a commercial salmon fisherman in Whittier, Alaska. Love started out as a deckhand but enjoyed the job so much that he started his own business. He is coming up on his third year of running his own salmon-fishing boat.
