The People’s Produce Urban Agriculture Initiative is the signature effort of PNV. It grew out of a collective call to action among residents and other stakeholders in Southeastern San Diego to change the physical and social environment to address health disparities
This grassroots neighborhood-based initiative recognizes that a disproportionate percentage of residents in Southeastern San Diego suffer from chronic, life-threatening diseases that can be traced to diet, nutrition and physical activity.
Our goal of improving fresh food access in Southeastern San Diego is part of a broad-based movement to build healthy neighborhoods. There is an abundance of vacant lots in our area but a severe shortage of places offering fresh, affordable produce.
