Three properties owned by the California Department of Transportation have taken front and center in talks about where to create a community garden, the Pasadena Sun reported.
Vacant plots at 215 Fairview Ave., 1028 Magnolia St. and 1107 Grevelia St. are possible spots for the garden, described by advocates as a place where residents can grow food, as well as come together to socialize, the newspaper article stated.
Mayor Pro Tem Marina Khubesrian has spoken favorably about the idea of such a garden during several council meetings. And because the city leases the Caltrans-owned parcels for $1 a year, City Manager Sergio Gonzalez said the minimal costs make them an attractive option, according to the article.
