Long Description: 
THE VICTORY GARDEN goes coast to coast today, starting with host Jamie Durie's visit to a city oasis that sits atop the Frank Gehry-designed Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. Then, what do the rapper 50-Cent, actress Bette Midler and the Broadway show Wicked all have in common? Victory gardens! All of these folks are working with the New York Restoration Project's citywide effort to grow and eat local. The result? Community gardens are popping up all over the city. Gardening correspondent Paul Epsom is in New York to check it out and gather tips on how to build a community garden anywhere. Finally, celebrated chefs Michel Nischan and Barbara Lynch visit Boston's oldest farmer's market and mix up a fresh salad using the very best local seasonal produce.
