Caption
Urban Farmer and activist Gail Taylor owned this garden fork, which is worn, rusted, and damaged from more than a decade of use. Before she had her own farm, Taylor often carried this fork on the back of her bicycle and on city buses to grow vegetables on other people’s land. Most recently the fork was in use at Taylor’s Three Part Harmony Farm in the Brookland neighborhood of Washington DC. One tine is permanently bent from efforts to dig out dense weeds at the farm.
