south central farm
i guess no one ever told some folks that without farms, we don't eat.
this is a travesty.
why should a non-profit have to go through the process of trying to raise money to buy the farm?
why isn't the city supporting these people? why isn't this being used as an example of what can happen in other urban areas?
we have huge, beautiful buildings in baltimore that are rotting away because developers are sitting on them like hens on eggs instead of allowing the city and/or community groups acquire the buildings. god only knows what kinds of use they could be put to: safe houses and shelters for youth, community health centers or medical clinics, day care centers or affordable housing units.
these buildings are sitting vacant or worse--torn down for multi-million dollar condos that people may or may not move into.
it's total and utter bullshit.
