The internships and workshops hosted by Growing Power engage young adults, often minorities and immigrants, in producing healthy foods for their communities.

His new book, The Good Food Revolution: Growing Healthy Food, People and Communities, outlines how local food systems can strengthen the health and economy of communities across the nation.
