Using Social Media to Police Restaurants in SF and NYC, Opening up Sidewalks for Gardening in LA, New Rules on Fracking from the White House – Social Impact Across the U.S.

Links from around the web on the people and organizations making an impact

This week in Social Impact Across the U.S.:

  • The City of Los Angeles is now letting it residents plant gardens on city-owned land, Fast Company reports. The decision came after a high-profile case of a man getting arrested for planting a garden in front of his house on an unused section of the sidewalk without first getting a $400 permit. The incident inspired more locals to plant seeds in city-owned land.

What do you think about what’s happening in Social Impact Across the U.S.? How could Philly learn from other cities and states? Please leave a comment to help us bring the national and local conversations together.
