Abstract
Because of a rapidly increasing birth rate and land privatization in the United States, processes of urbanization are quickly taking over what were once farmlands and areas of nature. “Little Big Land” suggests that this is an unsustainable, short-term answer, and that we will soon once again need the farmlands we are tearing down. Predicting a trend of urban sprawl that will eventually create megalopolises, this episode of WTTW’s Earthkeeping series also proposes methods of preventing devastating city growth, including the creation of protected green belts.
