Organically Grown Hyperlocal Produce In Your Neighborhood
About Crop Swap LA™
Easy access to affordable, nutrient rich food is our right, not a luxury.
Founded by Jamaiah Hargins in 2018, Crop Swap LA™ has grown from a small monthly neighborhood swap of fruits and vegetables, to a globally recognized movement.
The Crop Swap LA™ mission is to grow food on unused spaces, creating sustainable jobs and local, nutrient-rich food in communities affected most by food insecurity.
They believe that food should be grown and consumed locally to reduce reliance on inefficient, water and carbon intensive global supply chains.
