A small group of Cambodian refugee farmers have been evicted from a vacant city-owned parcel in southeastern San Diego where they’d grown food for 26 years.
Why They Were Kicked Out
The property was under lease from the city by a local nonprofit next door. Before renewing the nonprofit’s lease, the city wanted the farm cleared and the land given back.
The Bigger Picture
There are no plans for the parcel, other than to clear it off. A refugee resettlement agency is working to get necessary permits to keep the farm there.
