Incentivize yard gardening

To encourage use of lawn space for local food production, an incentive such as a property tax reduction for proportion of lot used for same (whether garden, chickens, bees or fruit trees) could be implemented. This would also encourage owners to allow urban commercial farmers to use their land (in exchange for weekly produce), which would stimulate local independent food production in the City (providing bylaws are amended to permit commercial food production on residential lots.)
