It has been awhile, but there has been a “lot” of activity (pun intended)! The Ghettostead continues to develop and grow. This year, it will include two farmers along with an additional raised bed and co-working activities. We’ll post more on that soon. But, you may be wondering about the title of this post…
You remember that lot of land we were working to acquire? Well, there’s strength in numbers, and we’ve collaborated with some folks to takeover two parcels at the site. We’re happy to report that the group is halfway there! Thanks to the assistance of staff in the offices of CD8, our group gained access to city-owned Lot 666. Broadchester Farms is on its way!
Now, some folks laugh (and some gasp) when they hear the designation of the lot. But, we say “awesome!” We decided it’s time to re-appropriate this “scary” number, especially when we learned a few things about it. The best of which is, 666 symbolizes Carbon 12 — you know, 6 protons, 6 neutrons, 6 electrons — the foundation of life on earth!
Pretty auspicious, right? Seems we’re set to get some amazing produce!
