Carlos Gomez delivers seedlings to
residents in the Mar Vista Gardens Housing projects.

Youth through our AFSC internship training grew seedlings to distribute throughout the Mar Vista housing project in Culver City and encouraged residents to use their own skills and resources to grow their own food and beautify their community.  The seedling project was accompanied with a brief presentation on how to grow your own food, reasons why, and tips on healthy eating and improving access to affordable healthy foods.  The interns also hosted a community open house for families to learn about urban gardening on site.
