Thanks to a grant from the Ashland Food Coop Unete’s community garden is providing healthy foods for our Latino Community and also teaching Latino youth important agriculture skills passed down from generations of farmers.
“Its always fun to watch children discover the earth through gardening, tasting the fresh tomatoes straight off the vine,” says Dagoberto Morales. “Many of us, as children, spent hours in the fields with our parents growing food for our family and also to sell.
“We lived off the earth and we were taught to respect it and be thankful for what it provided for us. We want to pass this tradition down to our children here, far from our homeland.”
Unete is a volunteer-led movement of farmworkers and immigrants in rural Southern Oregon educating our community and advocating for worker rights and humane immigration policy. Help keep Unete going by making a generous donation TODAY!
