Yes In My Own Backyard

Clive Thompson on Urban Gardens and Growing Your Own Food (from Wired.com):

A bit:

Urban farming tackles all three issues. It could relieve strain on the worldwide
food supply, potentially driving down prices. The influx of fresh vegetables
would help combat obesity. And when you "shop" for dinner ingredients in and
around your home, the carbon footprint nearly disappears. Screw the 100-mile
diet — consuming only what's grown within your immediate foodshed — this is the
100-yard diet.

Yeah, that's what I'm sayin. Just plant it.
