Neighborhood farming

via powering down: neighborhood farming.

If you’ve ever thought about what it would take to get your neighborhood all thinking, or gardening, in the same direction, here is a time lapse of what what man did.

He gardened.  He asked two neighbors if he could garden in their back yards.  He got more neighbors’ yards involved.  He got use of a vacant lot.  He gifted his garden’s food, and is now formalizing that relationship with neighbors who wish to buy the food.

It’s grown and grown, and now he’s got a tidy little chunk of neighborhood producing, well, produce. It’s a great story told through color-coded maps, which of course I can’t resist.  Bonus!
