Pittsburg: Coming home to help feed the community

PITTSBURG — Heracio Harts grew up near the El Pueblo housing project, and now he’s come back to grow vegetables there.

Harts, known by most as “Ray,” stands on a 2-acre plot, thick with tall grass fed by recent rains. That rain has also added a layer of rust to an old baseball backstop he commented he’ll tear out to make room for a community garden behind the El Pueblo main office.

Harts hopes that, on Apr 29, he and a dozen or so other people will be planting the 1st crops in this garden.

“I didn’t see this lot as where I’d end up, but I wanted to be back in the community,” he said. “I wanted to help people.”
