Urban Farm Coming to Rogers Park?

Rogers Park Farms, a community group devoted to local food systems, is looking to take over a 2-acre vacant lot at Howard and Ashland (the former home of Lerner Newspapers) with plans to convert it into an urban farm, the Sun-Times reports. Ald. Joe Moore appears to support the plan, and he's bringing an ordinance before the City Council today that would authorize the city to purchase the property. More about RPF here. [Sun-Times]
