the south central LA urban farm failed to reach their goal of raising the 16.3 million dollars required to keep them from bulldozing their 14 acre farm land that helps sustain almost 350 families. in its place, plans are to build a warehouse. an eviction notice has been ordered as of May 24th, but has yet to be carried out…if your in the area (wish i was) and at all concerned about the situation with the urban farm, you should check it out, OR go to www.southcentralfarmers.org, to see what you can do by donating your time or money. every little bit helps. gracias.
We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect.
