Salsa De La Vida
KCD-SCP funding in 2022 will grow and expand the existing Promotora led Salsa De La Vida project at Marra Farm in South Park. The project has secured an additional quarter acre farm plot at Marra Farm and will work in 2022 and 2023 to improve the growing conditions and soil at the additional plot for increased production, and reestablish connections to local youth and families for learning opportunities at the farm following COVID shutdowns in 2021.
