We got an empty lot!

Praise God! After 4 months of searching for a lot, contacting owners, and writing letters, we finally found an owner of an empty lot willing to let us use it for a garden! It's an enormous amount of space (almost 8,000 sq ft.) near 5th St. and Cerritos Ave. The owner, Suzanne, immediately liked the idea of having this place be turned into a garden. Incredibly she is letting us rent the lot for $1 a month! It looks like we will have this space for up to 3 years. It is the perfect amount of time to develop this for the community. The lot sits in a low-income housing area with lots of need all around. We feel God is moving in the area and cannot wait to be apart of it. Pray that this land becomes a Light to this community and for this vision to take root, literally!
