Double Value program to be launched in Overtown
In an exciting development (and I'm for real excited!) our new farmers market program, which was I discussed yesterday, has found its home: Roots in the City vegetable garden. This community garden in Overtown was started by Marvin Dunn, Ph.D., in 1994 and is just one of a network of community gardens and tree nursuries in the neighborhood. They hire local workers and accept volunteers from all over the city (such as fellow Public Ally Jane from the above photgraph) and in turn sell fresh produce to the surrounding community. It's a win-win!
The new start date is February 18th and the time is TBD, but we'll keep you posted.
