I absolutely love the idea of converting Buffalo’s lots into functioning farms. How cool an idea. Not only would this provide fresh vegetables and fruit to those in urban areas that otherwise are lacking, it would be a wonderful shot in the arm for Buffalo restaurants. Particularly if it were expanded to include urbanforestry, this would make a huge impact on the livability of the city.
It also brings about the possibility of becoming a micro-gentleman-farmer (gentleman micro-farmer? micro-gentleman micro-farmer?), a Jeffersonian dream for the new millennium.
