This has been an ongoing battle in my area. I've since given them as much money as I can give to help buy the farm.

It's appalling what big cities do which shows neglect toward the people who help build them to their greatness. If you haven't heard, read on.

South Central Farm
"The South Central Farm, which is believed to be the largest urban community garden in the United States, will disappear shortly unless members of the public lend a helping hand. Created by the City of Los Angeles after the 1992 Rodney King uprising, the 14-acre farm in South Central Los Angeles, offers plots of land that 350 low-income families use to grow their own food. The City of Los Angeles sold the land it to a developer in a backroom deal.

The farmers held off bulldozers by legal action, but the developer recently received approval from the court to evict them. The Trust for Public Land, a national, nonprofit, land conservation organization that is working to save the farm, has until Monday, May 22, 2006, to raise approximately $10 million to purchase the land. They are part of the way there, but need several million more."

According to their site, if they can't buy the land, they will refund your money.

I gave them as much as I could on my starving college student budget.
