Ultima Fin de Semana de La Cosecha

Ultima Fin de Semana de La Cosecha

Por Cristian Roldan, Programa La Cosecha

Cordialmente les deseo invitar a último fin de semana del Farmers Market. Aproveche la última oportunidad para consumir productos frescos este fin de semana, libres de químicos y cultivados en nuestro proprio barrio con el objetivo de mejorar nuestros hábitos alimenticios con el fin de crear una comunidad más saludable y consciente de lo que consume. Ha sido una tarea ardua y retante el cultivar productos orgánicos en nuestra propia comunidad. Recuerde que todo producto es libre de pesticidas y fertilizantes artificiales. Todo estara a mitad de precio. Así que porfavor tome la tarea de pasar y aproveche para consumir productos locales y frescos. De lo contrario habrá que esperar hasta la próxima temporada.
Ha sido un reto producir con las limitaciones de conocimiento sobre agricultura y sería una verdadera lástima que se pierdan los productos. Les deseo dar las gracias a todos por patrocinar el programa, en especial a Juanita, Danette, Eduardo Arocho y sobre todo a José López, nuestro más fiel cliente.
Recuerde que estaremos el sabado en la esquina de California Ave y Division Street el sábado y en North Ave. Y Artisan St. el domingo.

Dear Friends,

For the past 43 years Dr. Pedro Albizu Campos Puerto Rican High School has served as a beacon of hope and possibilities for the diverse communities in the Greater Humboldt Park Community of Chicago. This small, alternative school has truly become what Latin American educational philosopher Paulo Freire called ” a critical space for the development of cultural workers” where students are encouraged to engage with the issues of the day, particularly the generative themes of their own lives and the experiences of their community.

 

Though the school has faced many challenges, it has become a sound academic institution serving 180 students a year, graduating 95% of its seniors and ranked as a 1+ school, the highest tier on the CPS school rankings. Our school offers an Urban Agriculture program with three different community gardens and a beautiful green house. Young mothers have an opportunity to finish their high school diploma through the Family Learning Center, which offers their children on-site pre-school services. When students enroll, the school provides them with a counselor to help ease their transition and prepares them for their post-secondary lives.

 

Recently, steep budget cuts have jeopardized the fiscal future of the school. The School has not been able to find sufficient revenue to meet these gaps. We will need to address a $130,000 shortfall by June 1st, or we will be forced to cut services.

Urban Agriculture 2015 Growing Season

Urban Agriculture 2015 Growing Season

By Abel Fernandez, PRCC Urban Agriculture Gardener/Food Coordinator

Urban Agriculture is getting ready to start planting our community gardens. Since mid February, we have started our indoor planting in soil blocks at the green house of PACHS. Some of the early spring vegetables that are going to be transplanting out of the community gardens are onions, broccoli, cabbage, collards, kale and kohlrabi. We are looking forward to start our growing season this month.

If you want to help and learn how to grow food please don’t hesitate to reach out to me, with your help we can feed our community.
