Demand .jpg

Root Down LA creates demand for healthy food by partnering with high schools and surrounding neighborhood non-profits, where we host a variety of community events, youth-trainings, and hands-on classes that get people excited to eat their veggies.



Next, we focus on creating a supply of produce to support the demand for healthy food through private and educational garden installations and distributing our local grown food supply through diverse and meaningful interactions with our community.



Root Down LA program graduates are encouraged to start or funnel into existing local youth led business ventures such as installing urban gardens, distributing and selling produce from our farms, and creating value-added products with surplus produce - like hot sauce, jams, teas and lip balms.
