I very much am for another use other than a golf course. The Midwest is directly responsible for the state of the Gulf of Mexico. I am in certain agreement that it should be returned a wetland. Is it feasible to have a garden where there is wetland? Altough I love the idea. Will water still need to be pumped out? If we plant food, perhap research foods that can grow best in marsh conditons, and let it restore to a natural state as much as possible. It is obvious that native prairie grasses should be planted creating a natural buffer for the surrounding lake and stream as well.
