i’ve working for the last 6 years in the city to try to get small scale appropriate sized urban ag legal so community residents can develop there own business to support themselves and the community. the vision that i’ve been working from is of small plots half acre, maybe up to 2 acres, tucked into neighborhoods, farmed by folks in that neighborhood. and then this bullshit comes along and ruins it for me. what could make folks more opposed to farming in the city than a giant 70 acre farm that takes over a neighborhood the same way a giant car factory does.
i just don’t understand the mentality that supports this sort of thing, what happened to small is beautiful, what happened to scale appropriate.
