To fund new Youth-Powered Food Justice Internships. Youth will learn about food justice and community organizing, horticulture and garden maintenance, the history of the Melrose neighborhood and its community gardens. They will plan, promote, and present events including walking tours of 12 community gardens, Yolanda Garcia Park, and a roof top garden, and conduct healthy cooking demonstrations using food grown in the gardens. They will make presentations on food justice-related issues for monthly open community meetings for residents and members of the Huerta y Cultura garden network.
