why we're doing it

Healthy, productive urban farms and gardens are more important than ever considering the non-sustainable; environmentally (locally, regionally and globally) destructive; and/or sub-nutritional producing industrial farms. In addition, the agricultural distribution system, especially to underserved and vulnerable communities, is not meeting healthy human nutritional needs. This malnutritive environment is especially true for children, when nutritional intake is critical to their complete physical and intellectual development.
