Toby Hemenway suggested finding the "pressure points" in the system, the places where you make the most change with the least effort. We had a little discussion of what those were, but it's a topic that could be explored for hours.
I love knowing about creative, outside-the-box and inspiring solutions that have been created in other cities and wondering, Could that be done here?
I would like more clarity about what can be done here.
I thought maybe the yards on a street near me of the churches would be easy. They're south-facing, lawn, OMG screaming "cultivate me! grow food in me! at least grow fuel in me! but RMH's aren't exactly legal here so grow something in me but please can we move past grass already?" Or something like that.
But maybe there are even better places to intervene/act?
What other ideas?
