El Paso,TX — Borderland residents are pitching in to make sure that a youth farm in Anthony keeps growing. La Semilla food center opened its doors in 2010 to create a localized and regional food system, managed in large part by area youth. The farm is now trying to raise $20,000 to drill a 300 foot irrigation well. They've raised $5,000 so far through an online campaign, but still hope to raise an additional $15,000 by Oct. 17th.
