In San Diego, volunteers have been working together for the last two months to plant seven community gardens throughout town.

Led by an organization called Eat San Diego, volunteers are growing everything from small tomatoes to passion fruit to Middle Eastern mint– and they are growing this produce in public spaces. There are even gardens growing on sidewalks and next to bus stops!

Any person passing the gardens is invited to pluck the produce for free whenever they want or need to.

Devon Lantry helps manage the community gardens and says, “I’ll see people grab a sandwich nearby, and then come down here and pick some leafy greens and tomatoes to put on their sandwich.”

Lantry also reports that these gardens have spruced up public spaces and brought neighbors closer together.

Amazing work to all of the people making the gardens in San Diego possible– you guys are an inspiration!

At TangoTab, we believe in the power of communities coming together to provide fresh produce to people in need. Fight hunger with us and help support sustainable solutions like the free produce gardens in San Diego!
