Won't You Bee My Neighbor?

A former paint factory in West Oakland is getting a serious greening. City Slicker farms just secured $4,000,000 to create the West Oakland Urban Farm and Park, which will produce 20,000 pounds of food per year. If you haven't any interest in greening your own thumbs, it will also include not only a large lawn and a dog run, but also beehives and a chicken coop. Let the urban-agrarian lifestyle reign!
