First we heard about Landsharing in the U.K. where people with land are pairing up with wannabee
gardeners without land, and we all wished the service were available here. Well, wish no more – it's here and it's called SharingBackyards.com. And I recently heard from Alex on behalf of Sharing Yards DC, urging me to "spread the word to friends, neighbors, and
other interested parties – it's open to everyone in the DC metro area."
So I'm happy to help spread the word about this much-needed service. I've been trying for years now to get a community garden to happen in my own town, to no avail, so I welcome this much simpler neighbor-to-neighbor barter system. Check out what's happening near you.
