Food Politics Class @ Emerson Avenue Community Garden

As Vice-President of the Emerson Avenue Community Garden Council Board, I am always eager to participate in conversations about community garden, food equity, and especially the politics surrounding our food landscape. That's why I was very excited to be able to host a class from Otis College of Art and Design at our garden to talk about the issues that we care most about: foods - where it comes from, how we get it, and why all the fuss about it. A few of other board members were there with me including our President, John Sharpe, to welcome the class. We gave a tour of the garden and took turn giving the class an overview of the activities that take place in our community garden. As always, I walked away feeling so much more refreshed and inspired to see so many more people are stepping on board with us. Here are some photos from the event:
