Additional Information: This humorous quote by Pam Warhurst, co-founder of locally grown food initiative Incredible Edible, means that many people are so unfamiliar with fresh vegetables and so accustomed to packaged foods that they would not think of a fresh vegetable as being food because it is not surrounded by packaging. The quote is from Warhurst's 2012 TED Talk about how she started a communal vegetable garden in her community. Watch the full TED Talk here: Pam Warhurst - How We Can Eat Our Landscapes
