Can Growing Food Grow Freedom?

In the age of free two-day shipping and groceries on demand, it may still be shocking to know that many low-income residents of cities still suffer from a scarcity of affordable or quality fresh food. These are food deserts, and they still exist in thralling metropolises like New York City and Atlanta. Host Mangesh Hattikudur speaks to growers and organizations who are growing for good. These are community members and outsiders who introduce sustainable gardening solutions to help communities gain access to fresh produce and healthy foods. In this episode, Mango checks in with Kamal Bell, founder of Sankofa Farms, and Gary Oppenheimer, founder of AmpleHarvest.Org, and learns about what they've been doing to combat food apartheid.
