Seriously, things are getting interesting in Bed Stuy. While there are just about zero wildflowers, there is talk about starting a nonprofit whose goal is to ensure that there is no such thing as vacant land in Bed Stuy--that every single lot is either turned into a community garden or interim-farmed.
Right now this is mostly just talk, but I don't doubt the seriousness of the people I am working with and of course, I do believe in followthrough. We may fail, but something will happen. This blog is nowhere near dead. I'll be writing more about this Urban Farm Syndicate... whatever it becomes.
