Watch this video! An organic produce store opens in a poor neighborhood riddled with liquor stores, and it is selling produce from urban gardens and local farms. I certainly support the cause!

In West Oakland, California, where liquor stores have replaced markets, People’s Grocery is creating a healthy alternative, offering access to organic produce. Through urban gardens and local farms, People’s Grocery supports a culture based on connection to the land, sustainable agricultural practices, and regenerating community.
