“So what I’m trying to do is get those different groups of people together to come to the garden to grow what they want to be growing in terms of cultural relevance…and hope when we get all in that garden together we will grow your community where we are growing our garden”
Via www.racistsandwich.com “We celebrate our first anniversary by having guest producer Cristina Kim takes us to Oakland, Ca to talk with Wanda Stewart on the joys and challenges of teaching gardening and community farming at Hoover Elementary. Wanda welcomes us into her classroom and opens up about her goal to dismantle the negative connotations many of her students and their parents– especially from the African American community–have with getting dirty and growing food. In a time where it’s hard to know how to best be active and engaged, she reminds us that the way forward may be as simple as working like ants.
