A lot of times hands are better at working the soil rather than tools. One of the youth in our Summer Program (Leon) showing off the fruits of his labor.

Each season, The Food Project grows nearly a quarter-million pounds of food without chemical pesticides, donating half to local shelters. The remainder of the produce is sold throuh Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) crop “shares” and farmers’ markets. Locally, they also partner with urban gardeners to help them remediate their lead-contaminated soil and grow healthier food.

John Wang is Youth Program and Communications Manager for The Food Project. Visit to see more of John Wang's photographs.
