Three years ago the South Central Farmers were in the middle of a controversial and well-publicized fight with the developer that owned the land where they farmed. They lost that fight and were evicted. Tezo is one of the farmers and organizers of the South Central Farmers Cooperative. The story of their fight with the developer and the city is documented in the Oscar-nominated film, The Garden.
The farmers have since relocated to an 80-acre farm in Bakersfield, CA where they are still serving their South Central community through a partnership with WORKS and through a CSA.
