By Amanda Wake, ACRJ Youth Organizer
Earlier this summer I had the privilege of attending a permaculture design course organized by Movement Generation and the Occidental Arts and Ecology Center. It was a life enriching experience where I learned skills that I will keep with me for the rest of my life and have since applied to my organizing work at ACRJ.
TONIGHT we will have our community report-back at No Worries Filipino Restaurant, 1442 Franklin St. in downtown Oakland, at 6:30pm (wheelchair & BART accessible). Come through!
After returning from this 2 week course myself, three other participants (Jidahn Koon, Angela Angel and Ellen Choy), and one youth from Serve the People spoke on KPFA’s APEX Express Radio Show. We focused specifically on how permaculture is relevant to Asian & Pacific Islander communities. You can listen to the full interview here.
SEE YOU TONIGHT!
