It would be great to have a community garden in the area too.

That vacant lot between the 500 blocks of Bascom and Laswell would be the perfect setting for a community garden. I believe it is owned by the same family as the strip of vacant and fenced off businesses on Bascom ave.. Perhaps it could be part of the upcoming new owners project when they are finished assessing the property for toxic plume issues?

Hi Patty, check out AB551, the urban agriculture tax incentive, property owners with vacant land will soon be able to get a tax break if they convert their land for urban agriculture usage. The law isnt 100% yet, but it is expected to pass in a few months. We would love to help anyway we can :)

It would be great to get the children of all ages involved creating a mural.

I would want a traditional farmers market - farmers bringing their produce. I would not want food trucks and vendors offering food - that is not a farmers market.

I think this is a great idea! Thank you to whom ever came up with this idea.
