Zenyu’s HUG It Out Work Party a Weed-Pulling Success!

The Community Advisory Board of Zenyu, led by Luzviminda Uzuri “Lulu” Carpenter, organized a Work Party June 2nd, 2012. It was an event that supported one of our community partners, Hilltop Urban Gardens (H.U.G.) in Tacoma, WA.  Dean Jackson founded HUG in 2009 and has been cultivating their dream of food justice and sustainability. We wanted to support that dream and cultivate healing justice by connecting our community to theirs.  This WERQ Party was not a traditional work party, because yes, we spent a few hours weeding, moving soil around, and laughing and making jokes while doing it, but we also got GROUNDED in our own personal political food history, knowledge of food and healing justice, while sharing a delicious potluck that included not only lots of fresh veggie offerings but also a few bags of chips!    Stay tuned for more in-depth, in-the-dirt collaboration with HUG in the future!ImageImageImageImageImage
