Chinatown Alleyway Tour

This weekend we had the honor of joining a tour led by two youth organizers with Chinatown Alleyway Tours in the San Francisco Chinatown.

As we toured the alleyways, we learned about the rich history of the district and the current struggles residents face. High density and a lack of new affordable housing have pressed community members. Despite this pressure, Chinatown is resilient and has persevered through community initiatives and active youth engagement.

Veggielution Class Trip

It was such a pleasure to get to visit Veggielution during our Food Justice unit.

We were treated to a tour of the garden and a discussion about urban agriculture, followed by two hours of meditative weeding in the orchard. Check out photos from our trip in this short gallery:
