I think that's awesome.
Quoting ..MoonShine..:That would be amazing. Around here we have the CSA/farm share programs. That's about as close as we can get. We were too late this year, but next year I really want to be involved and buy a share.
I'm in the city and its Phoenix (desert) too...but wouldnt this just be awesome to promote more community as well?
I have a big peeve about how families and community have broken up over the years.
I do pick up veggies from a reclamation program here and I share with my neighbors or whoever is in need. I totally dig stuff like that.
Quoting punky3175:While the idea sounds great, I really have no desire to talk to my neighbors. I'm an introvert and fairly private so talking to neighbors is not at all appealing. Maybe once I own my own ace it'll be different but I doubt it nor would I want to have to depend on them to successfully grow what they said they were going to grow. I'd also feel too pressured to successfully grow for others.
I do love all of the greenery though.
Yeahhh for me it depends on the neighbor I guess. I have a few nazis around here...ugh
Quoting Roxygurl:If you have time for that, I believe in places like Switzerland they have a ton more time off and don't work as many hours as we do here in the us.
I work 50+ hours a week, I wouldn't have time to tend to a garden.
I think they also have more social programs too.
Gardening is very popular in my neighborhood (suburb) which doesn't look remotely like this US picture. I don't think we're that unusual. We do still have to go to the grocery store though... many humans don't live by veggies alone and don't want to.
Switzerland is much smaller and has less diversity (of geography and population). A lot of areas of the US have water issues so it might not be feasible to think the entire country can do this. And agriculture (even organic) can leave a negative footprint.

Well yeah, add in the chicken keepers and whoever else..
Seems so simple.
