5. this can work. there is a ton of human infrastructure in place to do this.

people love this shit.

speaking as an urban farmer, no one pays me to do this, but i do it anyway.
i've sequestered a boodle of carbon, too.

makes these resources available to urban farmers and you will get a whole lot more of them.
even this one small thing- i took many, many truckloads of landscape waste, including some huge chunks of trees. i sequestered all that carbon.
if i had just been able to charge a tipping fee, like the big guys get, it would have helped so much.
the year i started, IL changed its laws to allow farmers to take more landscape waste. but they wouldnt let them take tipping fees, courtesy of waste management.

if i could get some conservation credits too, that would be most groovy.
even a decent credit on my very-high-for-farmland taxes would help.
