  •  An angle no one talks about much: (2+ / 0-)

    local farms disappeared because the land became more financially valuable as tract housing, malls, and office parks than as farmland. How we undo that I have no idea.

    •  Up in Seattle the area known as Kent is prime (0+ / 0-)

      agricultural land. It was very productive up until about the '60's. Developers swooped in, Kent didn't do much to stop them, and now, it's all warehouses.

      Fly into Seatac and look down (southeast of Seattle) and you'll see all the warehouses. That farmland is forever gone.

      What a shame.
