cripplecreek totally heard blacks don't farm these days on acounta slavery:
On a local report about this out of Detroit they were interviewing locals about
the idea. One of the gang bangers they interviewed thought it was a great idea
but he didn’t plan to work on the farm “Cause my people done enough farmin in
the south before the civil war”
cripplecreek follows up that this is all a scam:
Urban farming is nothing more than another money grab. When they talk about it in Detroit they see billions of federal dollars for soil restoration.
Meanwhile, a few miles away are farms slowly returning to forest. Soil that only needs to be tilled to be ready to farm.
oncebitten agrees that poverty equals laziness:
The only problem with this idea is that farming is hard work. Right there you have ruled out the people in these “blighted” areas.
ClearCase_guy knows the problem is 'feral residents.'
The "food deserts' exist in urban areas because the feral residents will rob any grocery store that tries to open. So the stores close, and the residents cry "racism!"
If they have farms in the city, will the feral reidents raid the farm? Will they ... uhh ... "pollute" the fields?
Yes they will.

Peasants working the king’s land, novel idea.
