my backyard – phase 1, originally uploaded by brandy.bones.

Well, this is one of the cooler emails I’ve received in a while. I might have to offer up my backyard.

From an email:

One of the biggest challenges facing urban gardeners is access to land. It’s hard to garden in an apartment, but most of the community gardens in the city have years-long waitlists. So what’s a would-be gardener to do?

Sharing Backyards was created to address that need! The website encourages urban gardening by connecting people who have space to garden and are willing to share with people who would like to have a gardening space. Whether you’re an apartment dweller in search of some good earth or a property-owner with land to share, this site’s for you.

The DC chapter of Sharing Backyards is brand new, and we hope you all will take a minute to visit the website. Go to http://dc.sharingbackyards.com to add your listing to the city map and help us get the project off the ground.
