Giant TV vans full of reporters showed up at City Hall for the release of the mayor's budget (which we'll blog about asap) but were surprised to find a crew of young ruffians tearing up historic building's front lawn.

The produce from the garden is going to Loaves and Fishes, Portland's Meals on Wheels people. A victory garden for the new recession!
