Sharing Back Yards
I saw this piece in Daily Candy the other day and thought I'd share. I know we can't vegetable garden in the Village but alas maybe someday we'll be able to!

Very wary, not too merry about how that garden grows.
No silver bells, vegetable smells, nor room for flowering rows.
If you’re feeling quite contrary about the state (or lack) of your outdoor space, find a solution at Sharing Backyards. The collective site looks to pair people seeking and offering yard space for gardening.
Browse existing listings throughout the District or post your own stating your needs and wants. Then rake in the matches and commence growing veggies, fruits, herbs, and whatever else floats your sprout.
The company’s goal is to localize the food supply one garden at a time. Members also use the community to swap tips on organic gardening and working with local officials to cultivate public space.
Time to roll up those green sleeves.
