This is the best way to fight GMO. If every city and town leased land from actual farmers and not dupes for some Super Big Ag company, people could volunteer time and grow healthy nutritious food.
This is sustainability at it's best.

Let's restore fruit orchards in Detroit: the land needs restoration.

Sounds great, but I would not like to have a garden on contaminated land that once held a gas station. Otherwise I wished other cities in Canada would offer this to their citizens.

Some large Canadian cities also have a fruit tree gleaning program where they pick from privately owned trees then donate the produce to local food banks.
