Could we feed our city off the back 55?

Joanne Fox of Richmond has provided food for thought and ultimately perhaps food for mouths in a blog post titled “Could We Feed Our City off the Back 55?” at a UBC community blog called Terry. An excerpt:

 Now when I say prime real estate, you probably think about condos, apartment complexes, and convention centers. The Garden City green space is prime real estate, that’s for sure. But what’s not certain is what this land will look like when Richmond’s building boom settles. Will we see condos and coffee shops? Will it live on as a field in fallow? Or will we watch as community gardens bloom?

If our politicians would all think as clearly as Joanne, there would be no cloud of obfuscation hanging over the Garden City lands. Have a look at Joanne’s blog post!
