An amazing community, and a 'Pretty View'. Here in Linda Vista we don't even have a full service grocery store. As a result, we decided to create a system of healthy food gardens to alleviate food insecurity in the area. Read more below about our 3 Linda-Vista Co-Harvest members...
Cristina Savaglio - Linda Vista Co-Harvest #1

Bayside Community Center - Linda Vista Co-Harvest #2

While their community garden program produces amazing low cost food for the community, they have gone above and beyond by donating their extra space to San Diego Co-Harvest and our cause.
