DSA San Diego members gathered alongside members of the community at the College Area Community Garden on Saturday, May 13, to plant nearly 200 square feet of vegetables for a new cooperative growing program. The group planted peppers, tomatoes, eggplants, and more for the autumn harvest. Produce from this planting will be donated to those in need.
