Horowitz sued to get the site back and the city settled in 2003 by selling it to him for $5 million, leading to court battles. Eventually, he agreed to sell 10 of the 14 acres to The Trust for Public Land for $16.35 million but the group fell $10 million short and the option expired Monday.
Hill and Hannah said garden supporters were hoping the city or some benefactor would come up with the $10 million and the developer would sell, or that people would raise it dollar by dollar through small contributions. Hill also called on Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa to help the farmers.
