Please vote for Southwest Workers Union to get 40 fruit trees for our garden co-op. Go to www.communitiestakeroot.co
An orchard in conjunction with a garden located in a community marked by poverty, pollution, and illness would increase food security among local families, provide healthy food choices and create alternatives. Currently land use in communities of color means the contamination of the local environment. The Eastside alone holds 60% of the city’s fuel tanks, toxic landfills, numerous industries, and railroad tracks with a history of deadly toxic spills. We aim to change this stereotype into one that is positive and aims for community-led gardens, food co-ops, and farmers' markets throughout San Antonio.
Please support our struggle and check back for garden work days.
