The Wall Street Journal recently posted an article titled, "The Rise of the Lazy Locavore." It covers the popularity of urban sharecropping, mostly along the West Coast and recently in Brooklyn.

Once harvested, landowner and grower split the bounty down the middle. In some communities, multiple households are dividing the produce grown in one family’s backyard.
