Transforming a few of Louisville's vacant lots into an urban garden & orchard...
Lots of Food is tackling Louisville's vacant lot problem with shovels and compost. What was formerly 5 contiguous vacant lots have been transformed into a 1/3 acre market garden and orchard.
In 2014 I planted the first trees, fruits, herbs, and vegetables on this lovely fertile land in Louisville's Portland neighborhood.
Lots of Food purchased 5 contiguous vacant lots from Louisville's Land Bank Authority, the agency that holds foreclosed vacant property and makes it available to citizens for redevelopment. Find the link on our You Can Do It page.
