need ideas for securing community garden land

  • Subject: [cg] need ideas for securing community garden land
  • From: ASFisher@aol.com

I belong to Ocean View Farms, a 7.5 acre community garden located on property 
belonging to the City of Los Angeles Department of Water and Power. While the 
garden has been in place for 25 years, we have no guarantees of being there 
for another 25.  The property the garden occupies is prime real estate in one 
of the hottest  markets in the country, so buying it outright from the city 
will be unlikely. (One of the main reasons it hasnt been built on is that it 
occupies a sand dune, and is vulnerable to slippage in earthquakes.)

We are looking for examples of  gardens from other cities that have secured 
land trusts, conservation easements, formal status in the city's general 
plan, or other innovative ways to assure land tenure. This 
information-gathering phase is our first step in an effort to secure the land
