The The Unemployed Graduates of Calvin's esteemed pre-architecture program


Its a community garden

Its my first day creating posts and I'm finding so many interesting things for people to read about, so here's another post.

I think Ben Schofsma would think this is interesting.

I found this on Urban Cartography...

"For thirteen years, in the depressed inner city of south central LA, 250 families have been feeding themselves on with organic fruits and vegetables grown on a farm that was once completely paved and considered completely useless for growing anything on.

The farm has almost zero fossil fuel imput and zero transport cost. It's a model the whole world should be copying, but instead the city has decided to give them an eviction notice. The sheriff's office delivered the notice on March 1st. This farm does great things, and its in everybody's best interest that it survive.

The city wants to replace it with a Wal-Mart."

The rest of the story is at here

And this is some one covering the story.


  • I had heard about this a while ago too. This is a good example of what is called "sin."

    I think Mayor Giuliani did the same kind of thing in New York a couple of times.
