Farming in South LA

Where can you do some farming?  How about right outside your house?

The strip of grass on the other side of the sidewalk is owned by the city, but must be maintained by the property owner.  So if you have to maintain it, why not do it how you want?

That’s what Ron Finley thought.  Instead of a 4 foot wide strip of grass for dogs to poop on, why not turn it into a four foot wide garden.  Why not line the streets with 9ft tall sunflowers?  WHy not grow food otherwise unavailable in South LA?
