Urban Agriculture: A Potential Solution for Food Deserts

PF_Storyfest_Badge_V4_03-15-16_ALsmall-03.pngIn the very same neighborhood in Northeast D.C. where social workers hand out sterile needles to drug users once a week, RonDell Pooler is growing, producing and selling fresh produce to battle the food access problems residents living around the Marvin Gaye Park are facing.
