Environmental justice through community gardens

Diana Lopez co-launched the Roots of Change community garden in the Eastside of San Antonio, Texas an area lacking large grocery stores and places to get fresh, organic, or local produce. The new garden provides healthy organic food at no cost to community members, serves as an educational center, and creates a positive space for community involvement. Diana won the 2009 Brower Youth Award for her work: http://www.broweryouthawards.org.
