System for FAMU, West Palm brings hope for urban farm in foods deserts

Stewart Bosley, Jr.

Quite a few weeks ago on this web page, we lamented West Palm Beach’s determination to scrap the city farm that brought color, life and fresh new make to a dusty meals desert north of downtown. There is no full-sized grocery in a mile, so Henrietta Bridge Farm, the development of Vietnam War veteran Stewart Bosley on an acre-and-a-50 % of town land, was a godsend to people in strolling length.

Alas, the town, for factors yet unexplained — other than vague talk of setting up 50 %-way houses — declined to renew Bosley’s lease this yr and pressured him to crystal clear out.

Now comes much more-encouraging information. Metropolis corridor has worked out a deal with an arm of Florida A&M University to establish a few more compact city farms and instructional programs to serve reduced-money people in West Palm Beach front, starting off inside 6 months.
