For the low-income urban farmers of South Central Los
Angeles, creating a 14-acre community garden has been
a life changing opportunity. 

Over the last 10 years, its allowed many of them to
earn a living and create their own access to fresh
produce. The garden has been a vibrant green space
where families can grow traditional ethnic foods and
expose their children to a gang-free environment. 

So when their 14-acre community garden was sold out
from under them, they decided to occupy, refusing to
leave despite legal challenges and intimidation
tactics. On January 13th 2006, a court decision will
decide whether the 300+ South Central Farmers can be
forcibly removed. 

Were exhausted, said Tezo, a spokesperson for the
garden. But were starting our season and everyone is
looking forward to the harvest. 

Join host Jerry Kay, publisher of the Environmental
News Network, to learn more about the South Central
Farmers. He also talks to award-winning author Michael
Olson, an expert on profitable small parcel farming,
and well hear from an urban beekeeper. 

The Beyond Organic one-hour radio show airs every
Wednesday at 10 a.m. (PST), reaching thousands of
listeners across North America via traditional radio
stations, satellite radio, webcasting and podcasting.
Shorter segments are rebroadcast on the CBS Radio
Network and Armed Forces Radio. For information on
this week's guests and to tune in, visit

The show was created by Straus Communications, and is
produced in association with Icicle Networks and the
