I have been homeless in Mesa. I believe the cops think it's open season on homeless people. That's just my opinion, but I'm gone now that the charges were dropped.
Geoff Lawton just featured a food forest development in Davis California which I think can be a nice set of concepts to follow for the food forest/community/farmers market.
I am ready, willing, and able to begin this project whenever Mesa is ready. Here are photos of my earlier projects as a sample of my ability and legendary green thumb, more images here: peppergardens.blogspot.com/
It is not about passing new laws it is about getting the government to enforce the ones that at eon the books,
You will most likely also find that the government set goals very low and consonantly fails to meet them claiming funding people (employees)
Good luck let me know if I can help. We fought for 10 years to get this and no body cared. Another IGA filed in the archives.
