Check out this video of a unique service in LA that farms backyards for people who want the fresh food but don’t want to do the work. I’ve also heard of SPIN farming people doing this same thing in some other places.
This seems like a rather short term project, not unlike paying for landscaping maintenance. It can last while people can afford to pay for it but when money or if money gets tight they’ll have to cut this back and then actually do the work themselves so they can still have the food. Good interim step though between now and then.
