Food bloggers wander through Mudtown Farms

We recently wrote about a 2.5-acre parcel in Watts where some people are growing food and other plants. It's called Mudtown Farms, and the owners are looking at ways the land, adjacent to the Jordan Downs housing development, can become a more integral part of the community.

The Watts Labor Community Action Committee, which owns the property, has been working with Michael Pinto and his students at the Southern California Institute of Architecture to come up with some ideas -- including a farmers market and classes to teach people how to grow some food of their own.

On Saturday, a group of bloggers from Food Bloggers Los Angeles toured the land with Pinto, as noted by Times blog Daily Dish.
