WORKING WITH CITY OF LAREDO AND LOCAL FOOD SUSTAINABILITY ADVOCATES
In efforts to challenge Laredo’s food desert status, urban agriculture advocates came together with the purpose of providing food options for Laredoans.
Our team, together with City staff and local food sustainability advocates, pushed for local food sustainability policies. The City of Laredo was able to pass the first Urban Agriculture Ordinance, facilitating the process for Laredoans to cultivate their own produce. Along with District III Council member Alex Perez, advocates for community supported agriculture will be able to house a pilot sustainability center at the Canseco House that will look into water and soil conservation, inner-city land management, and local food sustainability.
