Donna Founder/Director Long Beach Grows
My grassroots organization Long Beach Grows advocates for just & equitable food access that includes food security through urban agriculture. We are addressing local food security by bringing small scale agriculture back to the city. Our mission is to promote green, healthy, environmentally sustainable urban agriculture in Long Beach, CA & other activities that educate, enhance, & grow our community by ensuring & safeguarding local food security. Our vision is a city that feeds itself.
I believe that all people should have access to affordable, nutritious, locally grown real food. I also believe that all people should be allowed to feed their families as they see fit, including growing produce in front or back yards & raising small livestock at home for eggs & milk, even in the city.
Our goats Dinkey & Bumper are symbols of food justice & are tired of being outlaws, and virgins.
As a mother, I hope to teach my child essential life skills so she’ll never go hungry & always know where her food comes from. My wish extends to the members of my urban community as well, especially the kids.
This is why I started Long Beach Grows.
