“Martha Stewart doesn’t live here,” reads a makeshift sign posted to a tree in a Mill Ponds encampment. A tangled picket fence made out of sticks creates an outer border and sense of space. Nearby, a tent, pizza box and a scattered collection of personal belongings. A vase filled with fresh flowers lends a splash of color under the pine branches. The Signal spoke to Jeremy Garcia, who set up the camp.

Q: How long have you been here?
