2013 Growing Green Awards Winner: Food Justice Leader -- When the city of Los Angeles threatened to bulldoze the nation's largest community food garden in 2003, local leader Tezozomoc and his community rose in its defense. He rallied the 350 families who grew food to feed themselves from the 14-acre South Central Garden, engaging in one of America's most important battles for urban agricultural land use. Tezozomoc gave the garden new life through a now-thriving 85-acre, 100% organic cooperative farm and the South Central Farmers Health and Education Fund (SCFHEF).
