Growing from Home

Posted: Updated:

ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) - You could call it a movement, but for the growers, it's a way of life.

Homegrown produce is replacing supermarket fruits and veggies in many Cenla homes and some, like Karen Richardson, are even turning their plants into profit.
Richardson starting selling produce in Downtown Alexandria after her home garden outgrew what her family could eat. Now she's sharing her harvest with other home growers and the community.
"Fresh just makes all the difference in the world, I mean a tomato, a tomato just smells good, when you smell it it smells real, when you taste it, there's no comparison." Said Richardson.

Richardson sells her fresh fruits and veggies outside the Tamp and Grind Coffee Shop on Thursdays from 5pm to 7pm.
