SUBURBIA--THE NEW FARM LAND

Love this vision of turning suburbia into classy communal living <https://permaculturenews.org/2017/10/09/the-new-suburbanism/?mc_cid=288db4da5a&mc_eid=8bb8d2506d>.

Though I don't have 1-2 acres as this article envisions, I have a large city lot and am taking steps to become self-sufficient in the city. I hope others see the possibilities in this vision!
