Grow-your-own is great, but not all of us have the time. What if we re-purposed the lawn service industry to tend a distributed backyard farm network?
One of the ways I'm looking to expand the variety of voices and ideas on GOOD's Food hub is by finding and getting permission to republish some of the best writing on food and agriculture from around the web. One site I anticipate returning to on a regular basis is mammoth, a blog written by Stephen Becker and Rob Holmes that takes as its beat landscape design, architecture, infrastructure, extinct megafauna, and the fascinating places and projects where those topics converge. By way of introduction, check out this recent and amazing post on a proposal to re-purpose the lawn service industry in order to set up a distributed backyard farm network.
