Tyrean “Heru” Lewis plants seeds for change in north St. Louis

What started as a simple trip to the grocery store has morphed into a calling for Tyrean “Heru” Lewis.

Heru wanted to buy some fresh produce, but he was appalled at the selection and quality of the fruits and vegetables in his north St. Louis neighborhood. Heru traveled to the same grocery chain’s stores in more affluent areas of St. Louis, where he was wowed by the vast selection of beautiful, enticing produce.
