Do you grow food now or do you want to start growing food?

I want to start growing food now.

What neighborhood in NYC do you farm or want to farm?

Bronx.

Where do you grow food or want to grow food (i.e. community garden, back or front yard, window sill, rooftop farm, etc)?

I have been working with Taqwa community garden. I hope to be able to plant in one of the plots there someday.

What is the name of your project or farm (if relevant)?

TBD

Please describe your project or farm (if relevant).

I am currently creating a digital video archive of Just Food events, community gardens and interviews with food justice organizers. I hope to produce a short documentary about the role of youth in community gardens by June or July.

Introduction

I am a young Latino immigrant from the Bronx. Rooted in my Mexican culture. My sprouting eyes and ears have flowered me consciousness. With the labor of my hands, I harvest from my experiences to cultivate and germinate the seeds of change.
