However, he is now facing eviction by city officials unless he can come up with $500,000 to purchase the property. Through his GoFundMe campaign, he has raised $485,000.

Annie’s president John Foraker told BakeryandSnack the company will “spread awareness and make noise” until the required funds are raised.

The garden under Ron’s leadership has played an outsized role in raising awareness about food deserts, healthy food choices for kids, inner city social justice issues and more,” Foraker said.

“As the leader of a values-driven business, I have seen, firsthand, the ability of a garden to drive positive community impact and change the lives of those it serves.”

To date, Annie’s has assisted with the development and growth of more than 350 gardens at school and other educational programs across the US through its own initiative, Grants for Garden, he added.
