Keven Porter

Yogi and Urban Farmer

In total, Keven’s family has lived in his current home for over 100 years. He lives a minimalist life and considers himself a yogi, leading a life with the intention of benefitting everything and everyone around him. He purchased a run-down lot across the street for $1 with the Newark adopt-a-lot program and developed an urban farm in the space. Due to the way the program is set up, the city could choose to repossess the lot at any point, but in the meantime it adds great value to life in Newark while it lasts.
