Goats, Food Justice, and a Lot of Fun

What does food justice and youth empowerment look like? Check this out! With the cooperation of Live Real, Rooted in Community, Veggielution, Root Down LA, Project EAT, Community Services Unlimited, Pie Ranch, and apprentices from the Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems, more than 100 youth from Los Angeles and the Bay Area convened last month at the Santa Cruz, CA, farm of 2012 Harry Chapin Self-Reliance Award winner Food What?! for Youth Day. The day was full of hands on activities where youth learned about and discussed food, the environment, justice and empowerment – capped off by sharing delicious, nutritious food! Activities included milking a goat, harvesting honey, making pizza, tea, ice-cream, or brownies (baked in a solar oven, of course), exploring poetry, theater, gardening and more! Youth Day participants learned, thought, built new relationships and had a lot of fun together! Read more on the great day here.
