Project Title & Description
Environmental Justice Program - Safe and Sustainable Home Food Production
The goal of the project is to teach young people in South Central Los Angeles about sustainable agriculture, and engage them in teaching other youth and adults in the community in order to promote healthy eating, reduce exposure to toxins, and promote adaptation to climate change. The project will increase the community's access to healthy, fresh produce while raising awareness about lead and pesticide hazards through teaching residents how to grow food naturally.
This assistance agreement will extend the project and budget period ending dates to 04/30/2012.
