Shaman leads prayer vigil to save the farm



For several years, an urban, organic 14-acre farm flourished in a warehouse area of South Central Los Angeles, its produce feeding hundreds of needy families. A businessman bought the land from the city in 2003, and in 2006, closed and locked it off, setting off a strong protest by the farmers and many supporters. Before a court could rule, the owner twice sent in bulldozers, completely destroying the Farm’s unique plants and trees, but many farmers continue to hold vigils and pray for the return of the Farm.
