Here a couple pictures of me welcoming the attendees to the meeting.
We invited Arthur Levine of Huerta de Valle, and community garden and working farm in the flight path of the Ontario Airport in Ontario Ca. Its a wonderful concept where the sales from the farm support the community garden by providing seeds, water, etc. Arthur is a fellow from Pitzer College in Claremont CA. The farm receives support from Pitzer College and Kaiser Permantente. Arthur spoke about the need for community garden and the value of people growing their own food as a way to alleviate poverty and improve the health of a community.
I spoke about the need for a food hub and that we would like to open a food hub along with a cooperative store and one may come before the other.
We also discussed the grant we received to sell vegetables on the Eastside of Riverside from the City of Riverside and Kaiser Permanente. Nick M spoke about his work in implementing the grant.
