I’m frustrated by how often solar punks and post-civs talk about ‘turning our lawns into vegetable gardens’
Villa lawns and golf courses are bad, but the tiny lawn of our living groups is the one place in the sun where we can exist as queer, or mad, or nude as we like and the grass playgrounds in the neighbourhood provide local community building.
And these ‘lawns’ provide a free place to relax in a world where most recreation is commercialized.
So my solar punk future has lawns.
