Part of the new economy will be, I hope, the resurgence of kitchen gardens and, consequently, the demise of the wasteful and banal green grass lawn. Interested in what other people are doing with their yard space, I read The Urban Homestead by Kelly Coyne and Erik Knutzen, a couple living in Los Angeles who are quite committed to living a low-impact and healthy life. Kelly and Erik opt for homemade and wholesome food instead of food packaged and processed, conserve water and energy through technology and conscientious consumption, and grow as much of their own food as possible. They even keep four chickens in the backyard for fresh, organic eggs from hens that fill their crops on a variety of feed in a coop with a spacious run.
