You Believe In Lowering The Carbon Footprint
Membership to a Crop Swap LA™ microfarm is open to community members that live within 1 mile of the microfarm. No long distance transportation equals less auto emissions.
Pesticides are never used on CSLA microfarms, all produce is grown organically.
You Believe In Water Conservation
All Crop Swap LA™ microfarms utilize recycled rainwater harvesting technology.
ONE moderate to heavy rainfall can successfully irrigate the crops for several months.
You Believe In Nutritious Food
Produce at all Crop Swap LA™ microfarms is grown without pesticides. Veggies are harvested and delivered to members within 4 hours of harvest providing optimal nutrients. SNAP/EBT cards are accepted at all microfarms because everyone should have affordable and easy access to nutrient rich food.
At Crop Swap LA™, we are passionate about cultivating sustainable and thriving communities through the power of hyper-local food. We believe that everyone, regardless of their background or circumstances, should have access to fresh, nutritious food and the knowledge to grow it.
By supporting our institution, you become an integral part of our mission to transform urban spaces into vibrant and productive urban farms. Your generous contribution directly empowers us to create green oases in the heart of Los Angeles, providing numerous benefits to individuals and communities alike.

"I, too, had a crazy idea of funding urban farmers in the 30th, connecting art with health and transit and climate and food and economic sustainability. I found $4 million last year and gave it to Jamiah to help him blow up Crop Swap LA. And he did more than I could ever imagine."
