Suburbans farming

It was bound to happen. With high food and gas prices, water rates going up and available land going for biofuel, some suburbanite was probably going to plant over their lawn and azaleas with, dare we say it, crops. An April 22 report in The Wall St. Journal, by Kelly Spors, talks about the trend of moving the backyard tradition of growing a few supplementary vegetables during local growing seasons, to the front yard - and turning it into a business. The technical name is SPIN (small plot intensive) farming, and loads of folks are doing it. LawnsToGardens and PathToFreedom are but a few examples of web-sites with additional information about this interesting trend.

 

This was an interesting article with the Wall Street Journal
