  1. I'm not a farmer by any means. I am however in the process of turning my back yard into a garden to help provide food for my family. I am starting small this year due to limited funds. I hope next year to encompass the whole back for food. I also hope to become a model for others to do the same. I live in Huntington and everywhere you go there are spots of empty lots in poverty ridden areas where homes have been torn down. Hura owns most of these lots. I would like to be able to work out a deal with them to be able to buy them at a decent price and turn them into neighborhood gardens so residents in the area can become more self sufficient and not so dependent on government assistance. I know this is a lot to hope for but everyone must have a dream and this is one of mine. Thanks for letting me be heard, Kim
