Green-space Oriented Development. GOD.
G.O.Ds: Green space Oriented Development. Small urban centres based around community green spaces for recreation and productive land use. This land use could include parks and gardens, community gardens for niche food production, food education and ecological land practices to rehabilitate and stabilize and provide opportunities for land care education. http://floodofideas.org.au/tods-gods-and-a-plod/

I thought I'd die laughing. What fool came up with that one? I can imagine it was someone who never stopped to think about it.

They are the fundamentalist priests for the new GOD.
