The 596 Acres 2015 Annual Report. 

 

In Febraury 2016, São Paulo's Lanchonete.org launched the print publication FREE GARDENS/Grow Your Own Food: a guide to urban faming for urban occupations of Latin America at the Centro Cultural da Ocupação São João. That guide was inspired by 596 Acres' own A New York City Advocate's Guide to Community Land Access. You can see the full PDF here (you'll see us in the credits if you look really, really closely).

A special issue of the journal Cities and the Environment, "Urban Vacant Land and Community Access," based on the Vacant Acres Symposium 596 Acres co-organized at the New School in 2014 was published in October 2015! It's awesome to have an issue dedicated to academics studying community access to land in our cities and practitioners from our Community Land Advocacy Network! Check out the issue to read about parallel efforts in BerlinPhiladelphiaChicagoMontreal and more!

Social activist, philosopher, and urban gardener/revolutionary Adam Purple (rev. les ego) created the world-famous eARThWORK, "The Garden of Eden," which flourished on Manhattan’s Lower East Side from 1975-1986. He also compiled and distributed documents that related in some way, shape, or form, to the garden, entitled "LIFE with les(s) ego." As noted on the cover page - CO-PUBLISHER: The People's Earthwide Press (wherever you have free use of a copying machine.)  He also admonished people to "INTERNET THIS!" This version, which we are co-publishing here, is from 2001.
