We will use a mobile trailer to encase a solar powered controlled environment farm to create a “Mobile Market” capable of growing and distributing high-quality local produce to residents of low-income neighborhoods Los Angeles. This Mobile Market will be the first in a fleet focused on educating the public about healthy eating, eradicating food deserts, combating obesity, and providing increased healthy food access in low-income neighborhoods.
