Another way to solve blight in cities like Lake Worth: Start an urban farm*

This information comes from the Loxahatchee Group of the Sierra Club. They will be having their 2016 General Membership Meeting Wednesday, April 20th. More on that below.

However, what was a bit disconcerting for residents in Lake Worth was the Anarchist candidate, Ryan Hartman, receiving the endorsement of the Sierra Club after a lunch at TooJay's deli. The endorsement ended up having little or no impact. Vice Mayor Maxwell won in a runaway landslide. Anyhow. . .

If you plan on going to the Loxahatchee Sierra Club event here is that information:

Wednesday, April 20th at 7:00
Pine Jog Environmental Education Center
6301 Summit Blvd, West Palm Beach

One of the presenters is Dr. Z (John Zahina-Ramos) who will talk about the "Environmental and Ecological Benefits of Urban Food Gardens."

Note: All Sierra Club General Meetings are free and open to the public. For more information use this link.

And stay tuned for more information about the urban farming event on April 27th at the Passion Vine Farm located at 1134 19th Ave. North. An RSVP is required. Call 561-281-7982.

*If you plan to use an urban farm as a retail location, please consult the City first to see if there are zoning issues.
