Message from Taylor Lindsey of The Plant Plug:
The Plant Plug™️ strives to educate and connect our community to Urban Farming and Gardening in order to establish food sovereignty and reconnect to local sources of fresh food. This fundraiser directly supports three organizations that maintain low or no cost access to fresh food.
The Plant Plug grows organic plants from seed and teaches gardening, Pacific Blue Organics is a Non Profit that facilitates free produce giveaways, filling community fridges. Lastly, Project 43 is a staple of South Central off of Crenshaw and Florence. This food pantry is open 7 days a week, providing fresh produce and personal goods.
I have made it my mission to eliminate food deserts in greatly undeserved areas by making organic produce accessible to all L.A residents. It is with dedication to this mission that I lead my team at the Plant Plug through botany education and garden development in your very own backyards, porches, and balconies.
