Somerton Tanks Farm

1 Comment

Almost all towns have a few extra acres of land around their transportation department, police department, water department headquarters. They currently just mow that land. Why not follow the model of the USDA’s offices and plant gardens, or even better–provide grant money, a competitive design process, and some city support to young farmers who use the land to grow produce for local markets, hospitals and institutions?It’s not just a suggestion… its happening! Check Somerton Tanks Farm and their video: http://www.somertontanksfarm.org/gallery/video.shtml

  1. That is a really good idea – more communities should grow more gardens
