Farm Obamaville?

Okay, here's an interesting idea:

Los Angeles officials have offered Occupy L.A. protesters a package of incentives that includes downtown office space and farmland in an attempt to persuade them to abandon their camp outside of City Hall, according to several demonstrators who have been in negotiations with the city.
The details of the proposal were revealed Monday during the demonstration’s nightly general assembly meeting by Jim Lafferty, an attorney with the National Lawyers Guild who has been advocating on behalf of the protest since it began seven weeks ago.
Remember the hippies trying to grow crops on that commune in Easy Rider?  My guess is there's only one plant the Occupiers would be interested in growing, and you can't eat much of it.
