San Jose Community Garden Might Get Shutdown

Middlebrook Gardens, a community garden in San Jose, is at risk of shutting down soon.

According to KTVU, the owner of the land is planning on selling the property with “San Jose’s deputy director of planning approved the landowner’s request to demolish the garden. It would be  replaced with a 5,600+ square foot retail building. The new building would be a stone’s throw from the planned Google hub – and the garden sits on land valued at $4 million.”

The garden has been there for almost 20 years and is one of the last self-sustaining gardens in San Jose. If you’re by downtown, feel free to stop by the garden to show your support. The address is 76 Race St in San Jose. -Joey
