About

Frida Herrera is the founder of Let’s Grow Healthy, a community gardening initiative designed to decrease childhood obesity and promote healthy eating habits for children in Canoga Park, CA. Frida and her team are working with local schools to build gardens and teach hands-on gardening classes to teach children about nutrition, health, and sustainability. Frida is bringing education and healthy produce to the disadvantaged children of this community, which is classified as a food desert. Recently, the venture reported it is adding parent education components to its program and continues expanding to build more gardens.
