Urban Sharecropping

Saturday's Wall Street Journal had an article entitled, "The Rise of the Lazy Locavore," about the juncture between folks that have land but don't grow food and other folks that grow food but don't have land.

Link to the article: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703882304575465720930763784.html?KEYWORDS=locavore#articleTabs%3Darticle

The last three paragraphs of the article discuss how landowners and gardeners can connect, mentioning an organization called Sharing Backyards, and some great examples of connections made.  I would love to post parts of the article, but it looks like my subscriber agreement prohibits me from doing that.

  1. Thanks for posting this - I didn't get to my weekend edition and it's in the pile for recycling! Time to rescue it.
