With seed funding from California Department of Food and Agriculture's (CDFA) Specialty Crop Block Grant Program, Fairplex, through The Learning Centers, expanded its 1/3-acre urban farm into nearly five acres of California specialty crop vegetables, fruits and herbs to be used for the benefit of the community. Part of the grant is also used to support hands-on horticultural courses for high school students via TLC's Career & Technical Education Center (CTEC).
