Sharing Backyards is for the city dweller who wants to grow some of their own food, but doesn't have any access to land. By pairing people up with others who have large unused lawns or backyards, more people are able to grow food while bettering the environment.

Urban gardening is something that is often overlooked, but it could make a distinguishing difference in the way we eat, as well as overall food production. Sharing Backyards is a tool that aims to bridge the gap between people who have little yard space and those who have an abundance.
