Convert Lawns To Vegetable Gardens At last a bureaucrat with an operational brain. Mayor Darrell Mussatto wants to convert North Vancouver’s lawns to urban farmland. North Vancouver council has instructed it’s staff to prepare an urban agriculture strategy. Mayor Mussatto said “We want people to convert the yards of single family homes into gardens and even commercial farms.”
Craig Keating said “People recognize that the way we are dealing with food in our society has got to change, we need to re-examine how we deal with public spaces and parks. We should be re-examining whether front yards should only be decorative, and we should support commercial agriculture in the city. We need to make sure there are not any obstacles to inhibit family yards from converting to agricultural use.
