We exist to re-claim lives of formerly incarcerated people, re-purpose urban land into productive farm plots, and re-imagine disenfranchised communities throughout Los Angeles as a place of empowerment.
How We Do It
EDIBLE TEACHING GARDEN + CULINARY ARTS
A project-based on-the-job training program that gives formerly incarcerated people
life- and job- skills.
We harvest and distribute the fresh food from our urban farms. Along with partner-agencies, our food is transformed into nutritious meals for people who are food insecure.
We provide at-risk youth with tools to make healthier decisions, and we provide them with education in healthy eating, horticulture and environmental stewardship.
We grow local, organic and sustainable food in re-purposed land and sell the high-quality food to restaurants with seasonal menus and at our farmstand.
