Food Growers’ Networks

The Roots for Peace Program facilitates two food grower’s networks in Los Angeles.  These networks are important spaces where community knowledge is valued and voices too often marginalized are put at the forefront.  Members develop leadership skills and are active in their neighborhoods by participating and often leading the following projects and activities:  

  • A community garden which serves as a learning hub and a collective food growing space
  • Engaging in local policies that impact food access, health, and land use
  • Participating in local community events related to food production
  • Organizing community events such as health fairs and block parties
  • Saving, storing, and sharing NON-GMO seeds
  • Promoting culturally relevant healthy foods
  • Field trips to community gardens and farm
  • Urban agriculture workshops and training
  • Peer-led recipe sharing classes
