I recently took over as manager of a community farm in an urban area of
Knoxville, Tn. I was wondering if you knew of any grants I could apply for.
Thanks,
Sabrina

>Bob  Reid, Los Angeles area director for the national nonprofit, said Friday

>Reid said it was too early to determine if the organization  would change
the

>Land acquires the garden, the farmers would not be evicted. He said  the

it

>The legal  disputes began in the 1980s when the city used eminent domain to
>purchase the 14  acres from Horowitz in order to build a trash-burning
>facility. But after  community activists defeated the incineration plant,
the

>loaned the  property to the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, which turned it

>a community  garden after the 1992 riots.
>
>The city sold the parcel to the Harbor  Department in 1994 as part of the
>Alameda Corridor development. Only a portion  was used and the garden
>remained.
>But Horowitz sued over the sale, arguing that  he should have been given a
>chance to buy back the land when the city scrapped  the incinerator project.
>
>In a private meeting in August 2003, the city  sold the 14 acres back to
>Horowitz for $5 million.
>
>The farmers and their  supporters then sued the city for what they believed
>was an unfair and secretive  deal.
>
>That, in turn, led to a Superior Court order halting the planned  demolition
>of the garden in 2004, but that order was reversed by an appeals  court that
>summer. The farmers then petitioned the state Supreme Court, which in
October
>declined to hear the case.
