Philanthropist breathes new life into vacant South Los Angeles lot
SOUTH LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- A vacant lot in South Los Angeles has a new look and a new lease on life thanks to the generosity of a local philanthropist.
The empty 5,000-square-foot lot was rededicated as a community garden on Saturday.
After the owner of the land failed to pay the property tax, the Los Angeles Neighborhood Land Trust stepped in to turn the space into a community garden.
The garden is named after philanthropist Erika Glazer, who donated $150,000 to the project.
