wildartist, I lived in suburbia as a kid, or more accurately what became suburbia. My Town went from 5,000 people to 35,000 in 10 years. 100% of the farms became housing subdivisions or corporate headquarter type places. The last farm was in my neighborhood and the developers literally had new roads dead-ending at the borders of that farm waiting for the owners (who wouldn’t sell) to die. When they did their kids promptly sold it and it too was gone. Woodlands in town weren’t spared either.
