Urban Ag Dustup

On Wednesday a story in the Atlantic argued that a new tax break in SF encouraging landowners with disused, vacant lots to convert their property over to agriculture is bad for housing. Yesterday, SPUR took to the Atlantic's own CityLab to point out that the sorts of lots in question (e.g., an odd slice of land next to a billboard, now a bee garden) don't compete with housing at all and actually kind of make life nicer? Let it be known that the real winner here is Atlantic Media, which got to play both sides of the clickbait war. [The Atlantic/Photo via SPUR]
