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