Commercial food production on City Lots


This idea is to use vacant city lots to grow commercial crops.  With an expenditure of as little as $5,000 for plastic greenhouses that extend the growing season from 6 months to a full year, it is possible to generate up to $15,000 in food on a single city lot.   Large crates can be used as portable planters if the landowner needs have the option to sell the property on short notice.

For every $100 contributed by funders to pay for the greenhouse equipment, planting boxes, and gardening/watering equipment, they could get a credit for $115 worth of crops produced in the commercial gardens.
