Sanzuma is a local nonprofit dedicated to increasing the availability of freshly grown foods through urban farming. The produce is donated to public schools in San Rafael and Novato. Sanzuma received a $250,000 grant from the California Department of  Food and Agriculture to make its program into a model to help other Marin schools procure land and grow produce for their students.
