When: Playndirt Crop Swaps will return Spring 2017
Location: PlantGrowShare Community Garden, on the corner of San Joaquin st. & Colusa Ave. Richmond SW Outer Annex
Despite being surrounded by some of the wealthiest cities in the country, the SW Outer Annex struggles to access nearby grocery stores, especially fresh produce. It is our mission to provide this food desert with locally gleaned and grown produce for its residents.
Eating freshly grown produce is not only healthier for us, but it tastes better too. Many residents in the SW Outer Annex often do not have many — if any — fruits and vegetables as part of their everyday diet.
With the donations from neighborhood backyard gardens and the contributions from the two Playndirt gardens, we hope to improve the health of this underserved community one healthy serving at a time.
