Amaya's Bookreads

Grant Year:  2018

Grant Type: Neighborhood Grants

Amaya's Bookreads is cultivating intergenerational learning among elders and youth in a community garden. Children are reading a book on growing fruits and vegetables, growing the produce in the garden and learning to cook it.  The project culminates with a storytelling event in the garden where community members eat the produce children grew.

Amaya's Bookreads is hosting reading and gardening workshops for youth at the Target Community Garden. Youth are working with elders to learn the basics of gardening including tilling, sowing, weeding, watering, and composting, as well as learning about nutrition and healthy living. The project is culminating in a ceremony where community members eat food harvested from the garden.
