Revolutions appear in many forms. Here's one I like.

  1. Urban farming (I always called it "gardening") is a great way to cut costs if you have the time and space, but calling this a revolution is hyperbolic.

    The social order isn't changed by growing a few vegetables. Here in the US, food costs are only 35% of income even in the lowest income households [1].

    Fruits and vegetables sure are good for you, but they contribute only 8.16% of daily calories [2]. Surely it would be wonderful to see this proportion grow. But those same people who can't be bothered to eat more vegetables for the sake of their health sure aren't going to turn out in droves to undertake the great effort it takes grow their own!



Thanks for your comment!
