One group is working to turn underutilized public spaces into food-producing farms. The idea is taking root.

And, more recently, vegetables growing in neat rows alongside a farm stand. What you’ve seen, in the midst of a suburban Reno neighborhood, is Reno Food System’s Park Farm at Betsy Caughlin Donnelly Park.

Pull Quote (200 Character Max): 
“When something I usually have no control over angers or saddens me, I often think about how I can turn it around. Can I take a small step toward a good resolution, at least in my corner of the world? If I can, I take that step, and it makes me very grateful to have the power to do so!” * Christel H.
Story Summary (100 Character Max): 
We know being grateful can improve our mental and physical well-being, but how can we experience gratitude on a regular basis? Our readers shared their answers to this important question.

We’ve all heard the platitudes about why we should be grateful. And most of us can manage it on a semi-regular basis, perhaps during the holidays or on our birthdays. But the reality is that living a life of consistent gratitude helps us in real, tangible ways.

“Our bike park has a heartbeat. That’s what makes it special.” * Cortney Knudson, Co-founder, Truckee Bike Park
Story Summary (100 Character Max): 
In 2011, Cortney Knudson and Brooks McMullin began creating a dirt playground for their community.

Seven years and nine months ago, Cortney Knudson and Brooks McMullin, decided to go big — big air, big drops, big flow, big fun. They began creating a dirt playground for their community. It was the beginning of the Truckee Bike Park, the very definition of a passion project.

Humble beginnings

Growing up, Knudson and McMullin were both active, athletic kids. Brooks did team sports in school, and Cortney was a ski racer who later discovered bikes. But it wasn’t until they were well into adulthood that the bike-jumping bug bit them.
