Chelsea Kellner of Midtown Raleigh News wrote Sunday about the exciting news of a small urban farm possibly joining the ranks of new downtown highlights. The location in question is a vacant lot at the corner of Blount and Franklin Street (in red above - the homes shown have since been removed). The proposal, by local startup Raleigh City Farm along with the Triangle Land Conservancy, explains the social and economic advantages of the urban community garden:
"It would go from being a completely unused parcel of land to one of the best-used in the entire city," Raleigh City Farm spokesman Joshua Whiton said. "We want to be a demo site where people can come by and see how much food can be grown in a small space."
