Food Corps

Reporting here is Kendal Chavez, a transplant from California recently connected to the YFAP through collaborative efforts between Food Corps and Kirtland Elementary.  I am a FoodCorps service member supporting the expansion and maintenance of the garden program at Kirltand, a multi-faceted model of garden-based learning that supports student’s growth through nutrition, garden, and agricultural education, as the school’s garden coordinator. Additionally, my service here in Albuquerque will also support the expansive curriculum programming, youth engagement, and community dialogue integrated into the YFAP’s foundational tenants.  The breadth of community involvement and partnerships embedded into this project is extraordinary and I am very grateful to be a part of such a dynamic example of the power of community collaboration.
