11/02/07-The Roots of Change Community garden has grown in size and in numbers. Recently the Youth Leadership Organization has been using the garden as an example to start an organic garden in a high school where many of the members attend. Through the use of popular education, the project has taught many community residents the importance of food sovereignty. Diana credits much of the success of the garden to coverage by the local media.
So far, some major highlights of this project include the installation of an irrigation system in the garden and the garden’s ability to be a teaching tool for empowering the community.
