RENO, Nev. (AP) - An urban farm in Reno is looking for a new plot as its lease ends and land values rise.

The Reno Gazette Journal reports (https://on.rgj.com/1MqOk2n) Lost City Farm will not be allowed to renew its current lease and needs to find half an acre or more for the next garden.

Lyndsey Langsdale and Toni Ortega wrote on the garden’s website that rising land values and the improving local economy are positives, but mean the garden has to relocate. Langsdale said they’re finding fewer options in the tighter market.

Langsdale and Ortega signed a three-year lease in 2012 after working with the Reno planning commission on an urban farming ordinance.

The Washoe County Assessor’s office lists the owner of Lost City Farm’s current plot as real estate company AMR Properties, LTD, which was unavailable for comment.
