San Diego Wants to Turn Vacant Lots Into Gardens

San Diego is currently looking over an idea that would turn vacant lots throughout the city into gardens! Now I think that’s a great idea and would benefit a place like Toronto as well.

According to the Urban Agriculture Incentive Zone program,

“…property owners would be allowed to enter into contracts at least five years long with the city and county of San Diego to allow their vacant, unimproved or blighted land to be used for agricultural uses, like community gardens.”

This could be a triple win for the area because it puts this undeveloped land to good use, improves the look of the neighborhoods their in and helps provide produce to locals that’s grown by locals!

Not only should this pass (if it doesn’t cost more than it provides) but hopefully this will become something we see start popping up across this great country.
