A group in Orlando are encouraging residents to turn their front lawns into mini farms. The organisation is 'growing' and has had recent media coverage and can be found on Twitter @fleetfarming.
Donate your lawn and Fleet Farming come along, they plant, grow and maintain the plot, encouraging residents to help. Then the fruit and vegetables are harvested and distributed to local markets and restaurants. The fleet of gardeners travel around on bikes to help eliminate fossil fuel consumption.
If you want more information on this great idea, here is a link to their website.....http://fleetfarming.com/
If you need to know more, our aim is to pass on information we have gathered about Orlando.
