Thanks to amazing organizing by gardeners and supporters, this community space was taken off the list of potential development sites and TRANSFERRED TO THE PARKS DEPARTMENT TODAY!
We put a sign on this lot last summer and talked to the owner of the building next door (Jalopy). Yesterday, I talked to a neighbor who said "596 Acres signs started a garden on my block; the group worked with GreenThumb, like the sign said," and sure enough, I went by today and this formerly vacant lot is now clearly being used by the community. Neat! We're so glad to hear it!
