Join us Saturday May 13th as he we kick off our first project for the Designing Neighborhood Agriculture (DNA) Initiative. We’re gardening for healthier communities. The DNA Initiative combines topical conversations, active working sessions, and farming education to highlight the importance and need for fresh organic produce in highly populated urban areas. The Lampkin Foundation has partnered with Huerta Del Valle, a non-profit, to host “A Day of Farming”. If you don’t mind getting your hands dirty with great company, this is the event for you!

Huerta Del Valle’s goal is to provide all 160,000 people residing in the city of Ontario with accessible organic food. They also endeavor to foster, cultivate, and build stronger relationships within the region.
