Who’s Your Farmer? a Photo and Video Showcase Set for February 11, 2012

Who’s Your Farmer?  A photo and video showcase of the Youth Farm Project is set for Saturday, February 11, 2012 from 5:30 to 8:00 PM  at the Dragonfly Gallery , 146 E. Broadway (between 5th & 6th Ave.).

The Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona’s Youth Farm Project and Dragonfly Gallery will partner for an exciting show featuring photography and video created by the Youth Farm Project Media Crew.  This show celebrates food justice, youth power and farming in an evening of art, food and fun.  The event is free and open to the public.

The Youth Farm project works to engage youth in the food they eat and foster the consideration of how what they eat affects their health, community and the planet.  The Youth Farm Project works year around with youth from elementary through high school to address the root causes of hunger and food insecurity through “hands on” agriculture, farm work, nutrition education and community involvement.

Dragonfly Gallery benefits and supports Dragonfly Village, a state of the art children and family residential center located on the campus of Tucson Amity Foundation at Circle Tree Ranch, a sanctuary for family restoration.
