Beach Flats Community Garden Threatened
Farmers Told to Turn in Their Keys by End of March
The Beach Flats Community Garden has had its ups and downs over the years, constantly reminded that the land is leased, rather than owned, that at any point the land might be taken back. This year, the threat of eviction is a bit more real. The City has created a new garden plot, maybe one twentieth the size of the Community Garden, and has asked the gardeners to give up their keys and stop planting.

No one seems to have a very convincing argument why the gardeners should voluntarily abandon their land, give up access to the garden, and start over in a plot that is dwarfed by the current farm. The community and gardeners want to maintain the garden in order to have a public gathering space and food for the Beach Flats community. A meeting was held at the garden on March 27th to organize and support the gardeners and to preserve this special community space. Read More | imc_photo.gif imc_audio.gif Photos and Audio
