We celebrate our first anniversary by having guest producer Cristina Kim takes us to Oakland, Ca to talk with Wanda Stewart on the joys and challenges of teaching gardening and community farming at Hoover Elementary. Wanda welcomes us into her classroom and opens up about her goal to dismantle the negative connotations many of her students and their parents– especially from the African American community–have with getting dirty and growing food.  In a time where it’s hard to know how to best be active and engaged, she reminds us that the way forward may be as simple as working like ants.Produced by Juan Ramirez and Cristina Kim. Music by AF the Naysayer and Blue Dot Sessions.
