Salt Lake County urban farming project a big success

The county started leasing unused parkland to urban farmers under the stipulation the food be sold locally. Not only have they had bumper crops, the food is sometimes sold just a mile from where it was grown.

At the fruit stand, customer Laurie Maggard learned that the field that produced her cantaloupe is so nearby that she recognized it from her dog-walking route.

This is a wonderful idea. May more municipalities follow.
