Why not look into alternate growing conditions. Aquaponics, Vermiponics etc. These are urban areas that have a lot of waste products and feeding these to some worms that provide nutrients to the plants could fix a number of problems.

Have it portable so that you can move it if the area starts to regrow and the carpark is needed again.

It seems like tearing it up is the best idea.

I think this is a great thing to study. In this time of economic down turn it's just what neighborhoods need to not just grow more food but to help unify the people to pull together and help each other through the hard times. Many rural areas are stilll that way today. Why not infuse that way of life into urban America.

Have a great Blacktop to Greentop day.

Very interesting concept. If it is successful, the amount of farmable land in cities will become much larger and potentially less costly.
