At Zawadi Farm, we believe food grown by farmers plays a vital role in our community and has implications in the current food system.
Beyond price-point and the on-sale signs, past the price drops and coupon offers, we look at food through the lens of nutrient density, and especially for fresh vegetables, we see the gaps that exist in the system.
Gaps that are significantly large enough to cause a concern.
The purpose of us acquiring and utilizing urban growing spaces, is to engage in this conversation but with a different mindset.
The gaps, as we are discovering, are bigger than one plug, or a single solution to fix, there is no magic bullet.
