Mistrust in research in health in some communities is so strong and historical. Researchers want to publish data on communities, but what is a community’s interest in science? Without building a network and a platform in the community, it’s hard to do any research–and discoveries have to go on to benefit the patients in our community.

The most transformative and creative spaces are green spaces in the city that are interpreted, designed, and used by the community. Urban farming hits all the points of environment, policy, food access, food justice, environmental justice, violence reduction, health and wellness, preserving culture, and making people feel welcome in a dense urban environment that can be difficult to navigate.
