On eco-architecture and urban farming: Are you kidding me with your f-ing farm skyscraper? | Grist
Right on. A good read. All someone needs is to ask for someone with land to let them farm it, share the proceeds so everyone wins, and do the work instead of talking about it. This is in contrast to the folks/developers who are planning to take good farmland and urbanize it at the edges with the farm in the middle, designed to be human-powered, solar-powered and all, when in fact they really plan to bring in Mexican labour and have their own food security assured - and find a way to develop perfectly good farmland at the same time. I can imagine the prices of those houses. I heard one of the leaders of this movement say it will be the ultimate gated community. Glad to hear the Southlands in Delta, BC might not go this way after all, and may be returned to the ALR where it should be.
