For two years, Huerta Del Valle, a community garden set in the middle of an airport, a freeway, and several plastic manufacturing plants, has thrived.

It's not an ideal location to pick up fresh produce, but for community organizer Maria Alonso it's perfect for people living on the outskirts of Los Angeles and San Bernardino counties... people who don't have access to organic produce.  KVCR's Natalya Estrada has more.

Volunteers and community members tend to the different gardens.
