Rachel Vigil, Urban Youth Farmer’s Almanac

Date grant awarded: December 13, 2016

Urban Youth Farmer’s Almanac (UYFA) are a series of youth friendly food justice reference pamphlets that merge topics about gardening, planting charts and recipes with topics and issues around culture, urban agriculture and community. UYFA will gather stories, tips and resources from two urban areas: San Francisco and New York. UYFA will be a collaborative effort, building on the experiences, resources and expertise of growers and farmers from these urban areas. UYFA will highlight the work of all people, but will focus on stories from immigrants and farmers of color. UYFA will be created by Rachel Vigil, an educator and farmer from San Francisco, CA.
