This is a fascinating article on hundreds - yes, hundreds! - of new developments now being built around, and otherwise linked to, organic farms. It's a new way to preserve open space - instead of golf courses, or parks - and also can provide food, community and learning opportunities all rolled into one.
Currently in our area destination resorts have had to incorporate golf courses as open spaces and to draw tourists. I'm really not a fan of destination resorts but this makes it a bit more appealing to me. One of the current County Commissioners has even gone as far as saying golf course grass should be considered a farm crop. I'm waiting to see if they try to acquire farm subsidies for the growing of that grass.
