Saturday July 16th. Rooted in Community Regional Youth Summit hosted by FoodWhat and the Farm and Garden Apprentices.
100 urban and rural youth from the Bay Area and Watsonville build community on our farm.
Three take homes (1) candles, salves, goat cheese, or some other farm-based product, (2) a full belly from the farm-based meals we made together, (3) and most importantly an understanding that each one is part of a larger movement for food justice.
Joining all the other youth in making personal comittments, Camri, a youth from the Growing Youth Project in Alameda, wrote "I will commit to gaining knowledge and passing it on to the younger generation--eat healthy--exercise."
