Visit Taqwa Community Farm, a model of urban agriculture in our city, equipped with chickens, beekeeping, fruit trees, and food production. Lunch is served at River Garden, established in 1976. Then travel on to The Point CDC’s Riverside campus garden, where youth are growing and learning where food comes from.
