Fleet Farming is a food solution developed by IDEAS For Us. We transform unproductive, wasteful lawns into community-driven urban farm plots. Everything we grow is shared with home owners and sold at local farmers markets and restaurants. We reduce pollutants in our community by cutting the use of harmful pesticides and fertilizers on lawns and using organic methods to grow food instead of lawns.

The program has grown successfully in the last two years and expanded to branches in Africa and California; and in the last few weeks media coverage of Fleet Farming has gone viral. Check out a few links below.
