Veggie Stamps

It is not very often you are told to play with your food. Let alone make art with it. But in this case, the students at Wilton Place Elementary were encouraged to do all of that.

We created some veggie stamps by using a simple washable ink, fruit, and veggies to make cards for the parents.

Christina began her career in Urban Agriculture Development as an Urban Garden Educator in Portland, ME. She has recently moved to South LA, to take the tools and knowledge she has acquired to aid in dismantling the food apartheid. "I firmly believe that educating youth is the best way to enact change. If people are aware of their options, they are more apt to make better choices. Which insures a healthy and happy future." She also works for RootDownLA managing food distribution systems and a food production garden. She actively works in food justice and feels that it an intersectional bridge towards a better life for all people.
