The old downtown site

Here is another video of the garden we started with Voz Hispana a few years back.

PS. In the video the Mayor claims it is on an old gas station site. However, in doing the research I found no evidence that it was once an actual gas station. (This source also includes the son of a man whose father owned the gas station). Furthermore, our Mayor does good work beyond that slight misconception.
Here are a few videos from years past to catch you up to speed. We have started eight community gardens total but are currently down to five. We lost one due to lack of insurance, another was on land that was sold to another non-interested party. The latest loss was our Academy of International Studies garden that was plowed under and cemented over due to the recent high school fire.

I will be adding a couple more videos after this one.
