Anybody want to lend me a few million dollars?

Shortly after the Rodney King riots, the City of Los Angeles created the South Central Farm. This is believed to be the largest community garden in the Unites States. There are 350 plots where low-income families grow their own food.

Well, now the City of Los Angeles is going to close it down unless the Trust for Public Land buys the property.

You can help out here.

This makes me very sad. Way to go, goverment, screwing up a good thing for a struggling community, and then refusing to help make it right.
