I got an early Christmas present this year from Sean at Worldchanging: he sent an email with a link to his new urban farming project, Alleycat Acres. This soon-to-be collective has its sights set on transforming urban yards and vacant lots into productive land, to power these farms by bicycles, and to distribute their produce through sliding scale CSAs and farmers markets.
Sean is based in Ballard and is looking for co-conspirators/visionaries. You can find all the information and contact info over at Alleycat Acres' website and can also follow them on twitter.
