Though the calendar and the weather aren't necessarily matching up this year, it doesn't matter - the holidays are upon us, whether we're ready for them or not. For In My Backyard's Lisa Bralts, it's all about balance - taking stock of what happened in 2011, but looking ahead to the New Year, with its plans and possibilities.

Reminiscing about Community Gardens


(Duration: 7:07)

Urbana-Champaign's vibrant local food culture isn't a recent phenomenon -  it's been brewing for over 30 years. This week, Lisa examines the  community's - and her own - ties to an important part of that food culture: the Urbana Park District's organic garden plots at Meadowbrook Park and now, Victory Park.

Backyard Industry's Lisa Bralts went by to have a look - OK, and a taste.
