    I have mixed opinions of this site. Previously it was the location of a high school, which was then demolished (who knows what seeped into the ground). The property surrounding it is a hospital. There is heavy traffic all around this site (pollutants). It's prime real estate right in central Halifax. I'm not convinced this is the best use for this land.

    From what I understand, Common Roots is there temporarily (for a few years) until the hospital expands. Hopefully after that they will be able to move to another location in the city.

    Sorry to hear your views on the farm are so negative. It is not an ideal location, but while it's there, I think the good this project is doing outweighs the bad.

    For those interested, Common Roots Urban Farm is fundraising for their upcoming move.
