Gulzar Singh is president of the company who donated this fence to Howard and Ashland. According to their website they were formed in 1998 and are union affiliated. Pan Oceanic (curious name for a civil engineering firm in the Midwest) is located at 8501 W Higgins suite 630 Chicago, Illinois. It is refreshing to see a corporation based in the actual city working on projects here in Chicago and giving back. How common is it to see donations like this from city contracted companies?

Trucks have been busy dumping piles of chips (now numbering 15) on the future site of an urban garden. No mention in the DNAinfo.com article about the donated (superior, first rate) chain link fence. Our local media is not always privy to (or allowed to report on) the back room dealings of Chicago politics. Regardless of such matters we are grateful for the attention and care this neglected site is currently receiving.
