Carlos Santana's MLK Day

The foundation Carlos Santana and his former wife, Deborah, founded in 1998 makes grants to community organizations working to improve children's education and nutrition, and to increase their opportunities to enjoy the arts.  The group funded Martin Luther King Day activities Monday (1/18) at a middle school in Sausalito, California's Marin City named in honor of the slain civil rights leader.  Teaming with GrowingGreat, the Milagro Foundation got volunteers to install garden boxes, lay out raised planting beds for growing fresh vegetables and plant fruit trees and vines. Although in Marin County, one of the wealthier counties in the Golden State, Marin City is nearly 95% low income.  The community will see the addition of a new Farmers Market this spring that will improve access to fresh, healthy food.
