From the San Antonio Current:
"Garcia Street Urban Farm, a 4.1-acre farm designed to bring fresh produce and food education to San Antonio's East Side, broke ground Wednesday morning.
The farm, which cost an estimated $500,000, will be managed via a partnership between San Antonio Housing Authority (SAHA), San Antonio College’s Eco Centro and other community stakeholders.
The project was nearly a decade in the making and funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s Choice Neighborhood Implementation Grant, which was awarded in 2013.
"We have one grocery store and many mini-marts in the East Side," SAHA President David Nisivoccia said. "Through this partnership, youth and their parents will have direct access to healthy food options."
