In the underserved community of East Palo Alto, neighbors increasingly feel the impacts of climate change in their homes. Members of Youth United for Community Action are making a difference not only through climate activism but also by establishing their center as a hub for climate resilience. Learning how to grow vegetables in the back yard provides fresh produce for their families and neighbors, but also serves as a demonstration of how everyone can cultivate their own, too.
