Today, we're giving props to the Philadelphia Urban Creators, who "are a group of young people who are fostering healthy relationships with Philadelphia communities in order to develop our neighborhoods sustainably and equitably, FROM THE GROUND UP!
Through community organizing, service-learning, artistic expression, and urban agriculture, we seek to unite, as well as educate, energize, and empower Philadelphia youth, ex-offenders, and communities with the skills, resources, networks, and analysis to become passionate leaders in the movement to transform blighted urban landscapes into models of community-based, social and environmental sustainability."
Check out more of them here: http://phillyurbancreators.org/.
Are you part of a food justice crew like PUC and have thoughts on shaping the next steps of the youth food movement? We invite folks to take 20 minutes on a 20-question survey: http://liverealnow.weebly.com/shaping-our-future.html.
