The author comments on the alleged lack of activity for the Year of Food and Farming, with particular reference to London, England. The author emphasizes the responsibility of each one in achieving the aim of the special year of reconnecting children with where food comes from. The author relates that nearly 2,700 organizations became involved in the campaign. The author urges armchair commentators to stop judging progress of the Year of Food and Farming by the level of trade press which somehow undermines the efforts of others on their behalf.
