Bayside Community Center hands out tiny garden bags to families



Wednesday, the Bayside Community Center gave out free tiny garden bags to 100 families in Linda Vista and City Heights.

The giveaway is part of the center's Tiny Garden program that teaches families how to grow their own produce.

Supervisor Nathan Fletcher was on hand to help assemble and distribute bags.

He said a lot of neighborhoods in San Diego County lack access to grocery stores and fresh produce.

"They may have 50 liquors stores around but no places to actually go and get fruit and vegetables so the ability to grow it yourself is a wonderful thing," Fletcher said.

The ting garden bags come with a list of instructions and a QR to a step-by-step video on how to plant and care for the garden.
