Jamiah Hargins is the founder of Crop Swap LA, a social enterprise that will convert lawns and unused spaces into hubs of nutrient-rich food for Los Angeles communities that are the most affected by nutritional food discrimination. What started as a method of connecting neighborhood gardeners to share their extra produce, has grown into a full venture that includes Jamiah and his team literally planting the seeds for community connections and healthy food. Jamiah speaks with us about this work, the challenges and pay-offs of starting up a social enterprise, food justice, and the power of nutritious food to connect us to our communities and environments.
