KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Tom Winston worked in the fields at a slave camp in Mississippi as a young boy. He is now 97-years old and  grows food in an 'urban garden' in Kansas City. Even though it's horrific he worked at a slave camp as a young boy, he has great memories of working on the land and growing crops, which is why he enjoys urban gardening.

He says he's growing broccoli, beets, onions, carrots and tomatoes.

"For one thing, I need to get out and do something," Winston said.

Sarah Faltico with Cultivate KC says the program started with six gardens but has grown to 30 gardens.
