Oak Cliff People Plugs Community Gardens

We appreciate all of the attention we’re seeing from different media outlets, and Oak Cliff People continues the trend in their latest issue!

The article,”Gardens Garner Council Support”, discusses this past Monday’s city council meeting regarding the cities policy toward permitting community gardens.  Councilwoman Delia Jasso and the rest of the council past a unanimous motion to come up with other options other than the one presented to the council that included a possible $1,170 application for a permit that would have taken up to 1 year for approval.

Mariana is quoted saying, “We have vacant lots in Oak Cliff that need redevelopment, and there are very few prospects for coming up with new buildings for those places.  If nothing else, community gardens are a good short-term idea for cleaning up a lot that needs some help and bringing the neighborhood together”

Also, a great picture of Jerri and Mariana working at the new Methodist Dallas Hospital Garden is on page 6 of the remaining story!
