cbs presented by target.... urban agriculture and community greening are helping cities become more sustainable for the future. and that's why target has partnered with the nonprofit greensgrow in philadelphia. the novel idea was... can we put a farm in the heart of the city and really put food directly accessible to the people that were eating it. we're making sure that they have access to fresh local produce, to education, to a space where they feel like they can come in and just enjoy themselves. the impact that greensgrow has on the community is amazing. what they do and what they stand for is really important. having partnerships like we do at target helps people along this journey to creating a better, healthier, community for themselves. target has been essential to a lot of our programs that we've been able to start this year. i think it's very important for us to come outside of target and really be inside of peoples' communities, as well. cbs eye on the community is sponsored by target. making our community even better, together.
