Joe Thomas of LA CAN on Gardening in Downtown LA

By Helena Liikanen-Renger

Joe Thomas works as a gardener at the Los Angeles Community Action Network, LA CAN. As a part of “Team Food”, he grows vegetables on a rooftop on Main Street, in Downtown Los Angeles.

But Joe Thomas has a dream: to grow vegetables in planters down on Main Street, where the people of Skid Row would have easy access to healthy food. So far his attempts have been prevented.
