  1. The below website is a program that was started in Chicago to teach homeless how to grow food and provide job training and entrepreneurial skills. The program has become very successful and they now have a large farm in Marseilles, IL with a farm stand and CSA program. There is a local church that owns 20 acres and a tractor in Venice they are currently doing nothing with. I spoke to them a while back about starting a similar program here. If we can get the community involved in getting it off the ground initially, this could blossom into a simarly wonderful program. It is a wonderful opportunity to teach and provide people with the skills necessary to feed themselves and provide employment/ job skills. The picture you posted is unnecessary when there is so much opportunity and empty land. Also, the lack of local farms in this area is very concerning. This land could solve multiple problems at one time.
