Brown Space

Today I learned an interesting new concept from my visit to Groundworks Portland "Brown Space". You probably bike past them everyday in your neighborhood they are usually eye sores. For a Food Justice activist, Brown space means an abandoned, toxic, or unused land lot located in an urban environment. It usually has no real effort to grow anything edible and may have a history of contamination. These are the perfect spots to identify in your neighborhood to potentially build a garden, park, or permaculture. Organizations like Groundworks are making efforts to work with the city to turn some of these brown spaces into real assets to the community.
