Collaboration In Action
We are building a coalition to revolutionize the role of gardens in communities - not only as a training ground for food access and education but as an economic bridge to bring food dollars back into our LA neighborhoods. This coalition builds on this prior investment and commits to share resources - in South LA and other communities - to strengthen our capacity to create culturally relevant, equitable, and sustainable food system changes, one neighborhood at a time.
To build an economic bridge from community gardens across LA, to share resources and create more resilient communities.
We are partnering to change the face of philanthropy and invest in our local communities together to create dialogue and share cultural traditions through food.
