BEAUFORT, S.C. (AP) - Plans to create a 6-acre urban farm in a Beaufort park have fallen through because of a deed restriction on the property.

The Beaufort Gazette reports (https://bit.ly/1GlU76B ) the proposed nonprofit urban farm in the city’s Southside Park was to have greenhouses, raised beds, chickens, a demonstration kitchen and a backyard garden.(backslash)

Beaufort Community Farm director Paul Brody had proposed the project.

But Mayor Billy Keyserling says that the deed restriction on the park requires that the property be used only for recreation.

Keyserling says that while garden plots might be considered recreation, the plan had grown so much bigger and could no longer be considered a purely recreational facility.
