This property was in the past used for agricultural purposes by owner’s ancestors, hence the presence of so many types of trees. The owners had for some time considered keeping up with tradition by establishing an urban farm of high yield fruits and vegetables, since the land is so fertile and near a popular intersection. This is still a possibility, since a well organized venture of this nature be could potentially be lucrative given that islanders rely heavily on imports.
