What is your wish for this project?
We would like to work together in support of our local Community Supported Agriculture farm - Down to Earth CSA - to raise awareness of the CSA within the community, and support its dual mission of providing access to local, organic food, and educating on the importance of sustainable food systems. The CSA has provided work experience to students with disabilities, and some of these students are in our group.
How did it go?
We are not completely finished, but the first part - making hand-stamped tablecloths for the vegetable distribution room at our local CSA farm went very well. Students of diverse intellectual ability worked very well in collaboration, and a trip to the farm informed them about the importance (and fun) of this sustainable local food system. We plan to continue this project - sew, stamp and sell organic cotton tote bags in September.
