Day Six of Programming--Digital Stories

Hello, it's Jessica writing!

Well, it's day six into the program today, July 22, and we are blazin'! The girls, over the last few days, have covered the topics of food justice, equal access to just, healthful food, America's values on food, gardening skills, and the significance of urban gardening. We've paid visits to the San Francisco Food Bank, Crissy Field coordinator and mentor Charity Maybury's home garden, have helped distribute food to the Mission community with Food Runner Nicole Brisebois, and learned at the Free Farm of San Francisco with a gracious lesson from Heidi.

Today marks the reflection day of what we've been able to learn and apply. We are now at the end of the second week and we're soon to be coordinating our own garden project, when we will raise our voices for campers and engage them in the awesomeness that is good food.

Today, we've constructed a reflection in the form of a digital story. Using what they have learned, the girls have created their own garden utopia. They've illustrated their ideal gardens and the positive impacts the gardens will impart. I feel their imagery and ideals and moods in their narratives are truly empowering, and I can't wait to see what garden project they'll create.

Take a look at our stories!

Ever sincerely,

Jessica Carrots Yap
