improved nutrition Silas, AJ, April, Fiona, Maddi, Lily National State City School Dale House Food Youth Community Allotment gardens, or community gardens, arrived in Europe more than 150 years ago.
A German doctor is responsible for their creation, as he required physical outdoor activity for his adolescent patients. They were called "Schrebergärtens," named after the doctor.
soon, parents took over, expanded the beds and erected arbors, huts, and fences.
A set of rules of conduct was developed, and 100 gardens were established by 1870. For the Love of Food! #1 The Food! (Sheepishly)
#2 I had to....
#3 The Function Itself
Democratic procedures have always been a tradition: the gardens focused on food security during WWI and WWII, they serve as a meeting and celebration area for communities, and they integrate and include all individuals German Allotments 1/4 million lbs of food on 40 acres 500 person CSA Vision:
We envision a world where youth are active leaders, diverse communities feel connected to the land and each other, and everyone has access to fresh, local, healthy, affordable food. youth and adult partnerships stewards of our land & community diverse experiences & backgrounds hard work right to healthy, affordable food Hunger Relief

Common ground "The talks sound interesting, but once you throw food into the mix it becomes worth going to. At least then I can count on one aspect of it to be good."
-Sam, Sophmore

"The food seems to make people happier. They are more attentive, amiable, and interactive. Especially for the post-class lunch time ones."
-Will, Sophmore

"I tell my friends we should go to a talk and they say 'no'......until I say there's free food."
-Caroline, Sophmore The Quick Interpretation -Food=Known, Talk=Unknown
-Food is the original social network
-It provides common ground -I'm a broke college kid, and I'm HUNGRY

-I need a break from the dinning halls Behind Providing the Food:

challenge—getting our kids jobs.

Persuade kids into the garden depends on a kid by kid basis, kids come in with specific needs Community and Dale House

CC and Dale House Formal interview with Jay, Dale House Garden Manager
Audio recorded & Written notes
Participant Observation
Worked alongside Dale House residents in the garden and around their community
Secondary sources, case studies reviewed FOODCORPS
-branch off of AmeriCorps
-works with schoolchildren to increase nutritional education and awareness of global food system
-school gardens, healthy and local cafeteria food, class visits from professional athletes and chefs, cooking demos THE VISION
"We envision a nation of well-nourished children: children who know what healthy food is, how it grows and where it comes from, and who have access to it every day. These children, having grown up in a healthy food environment, will learn better, live longer, and liberate their generation from diet-related disease"- FoodCorps THE CHALLENGE -obesity rates in children have TRIPLED in the last 30 years

-harder for kids to know WHAT they are eating and WHERE it comes from (GMOs, processed foods, industrialized agriculture)

-elementary students spend less than four hours per year learning about nutrition THE EVEN BIGGER CHALLENGE
-low-income and racial minority children are more likely to develop a diet related disease
- Institutional stratification: existing political, social, and environmental institutions propagate racial and class inequalities
-healthy, fresh food tends to be more expensive than high calorie, junk food
-food deserts in low-income neighborhoods
--> propagates existing social stratification COMMUNITY IMPACT -educate youth--> bring new awareness back into community, become the next generation of food conscious leaders
-inspire interest in agricultural shares, community gardens, farmers markets
-reduce crime, safer communities
-improve the health of community--> make an investment in future, increase productivity The community
the family
the children
the senior citizens
the immigrants
the environment

One kid worked for Brendon’s company, Future Point. That was his parole plan.

Make it an eight-week program

So when a kid left, they would know how to interview and know how to get a job that is not a dead-end.
