EPRA has gotten two shout-outs in the news this month!  First, co-founder Haile Johnston was featured in Aetna’s 2014 African American history calendar for the work he and Tatiana Garcia-Granados do connecting healthy, fresh food to city neighborhoods through their work with Common Market and EPRA.  Check it out here!
