America’s future is one of small-scale yardfarming. And that’s the best case scenario. But how do we facilitate that transition–after 75 years of marketing the high-consumption consumer lifestyle? Welcome to the Yardfarmers, a reality TV show that’ll follow six young Americans and their families as they turn their yards (or neighbors’ yards) into sufficiency farms.
The goal will be to get Americans to abandon their climate-changing lawn mowers and instead get them to pick up shovels and convert their lawns into organic, biodiverse, sources of food.
