Our intern, Jorge Sandoval, Roots for Peace intern and program alumni, has been working on documenting and sharing with public the work of the Red de Cultivadores (cultivator network) in South LA. At the same time, these newsletters have served as an educational and promotion tool for the Red de Cultivadores in South Los Angeles. Through the distribution of this newsletter to community members, South LA residents can learn ways on how to get involved if interested in monthly garden meetings as well as cooking workshops offered by Joanna Farias, Roots for Peace intern and program alumni.
In the May Newsletter, you can find gardening tips, a member’s story on why he is involved with the Red de Cultivadores, an event calendar, pictures and highlights from the Block Party celebration, and information on DAPA qualifications.
Check out the newsletter (in Spanish and English) by clicking on the “Readings” tab on this blog.
