Safe haven

 An organic community farm can be a lifesaver in a rough neighbourhood, SIMON WEBSTER reports.

Community gardens can be powerful things, as this public television video, featured on Huffington Post, illustrates.


It features Alemany Farm, a 4.5-acre, nonprofit, community-run organic plot in one of San Francisco’s most dangerous neighbourhoods.


Through the farm, the locals not only get to grow healthy, tasty food, but gain self-respect, a safe place to hang out and an education in organic growing.


The farm’s website is here.
