LA South Central Urban Farmers Fighting Eviction.

For the last 13 years, about 250 families in the depressed inner city of South Central Los Angeles have depended on an urban farm. Now, they are facing eviction as a new Wal-Mart is coming to town.

The issue is actually more complex: turns out that the farm is on private property, and the owner is not being compensated.

The South Central farmers have less than 30 days to raise 1 million dollars to avoid evicition. If anyone can help with any donation, that would be great.
