Gee, how time flies! This summer has been a whirlwind experience for the garden as we teamed up with InterIm CDA's Wilderness Inner-city Leadership Development (WILD) Youth program to roll out a six-week food justice curriculum. This was the first year the garden developed a curriculum that allowed us to dialogue with WILD Youth to intentionally dialogue about oppression, food, and identity. Throughout the summer we explored issues of hunger, racism, homelessness, and food systems through interactive, youth-led programming.
We are so grateful to the thirteen WILD Youth for giving us the space to pilot this curriculum and learn alongside us. We hope to publish the curriculum here once we integrate youth feedback and reformat our plans into something downloadable. Stay tuned!
In the meantime, check out the wonderful highlight video produced by our intern and curriculum co-developer, An An, in addition to some of our favorite photos from the summer!
