Yardfarmers Contestant Video Audition
Does moving back home to farm sound fun to you?
Be a star on a new reality TV show, Yardfarmers

Due August 1st, 2015 - Yardfarmers is an upcoming reality TV show about young Americans moving back in with their parents to farm their parents’ yards and neighborhood greenspaces. Why? Because yardfarming could help solve many of America’s challenges: from the obesity epidemic to food insecurity, from the abuses of industrial agriculture to food deserts, from social isolation to climate change. In an era of a changing climate, America’s future may very well depend on what form its 40 million acres of lawn take. An America built around local agricultural economies will be far more resilient than one built around car-dependent suburbs. The show is planned to air spring 2017 with filming in 2016.

Interested in being on the show? Submit a Video Audition that demonstrates why you should be chosen to be part of the show. Yardfarmers wants to get to know you, the parent(s) and/or family you’ll be living with, including any other members of the household who will be living at home from March 2016 to November 2016. They want to also get to know your neighborhood and the sites you plan to yardfarm. Show the real you! And why you will make a great Yardfarmer.
