SF Youth Unity Eco Fest

Produce to the People had the opportunity to have a table at the fun and amazing SF Youth Unity Eco Fest, the first youth environmental summit in San Francisco, which was organized entirely by a group of ten totally incredible high school students. The event had a live music stage with a bicycle powered speaker system, workshops by local schools and organizations, a recycled art tree which was updated continuously throughout the day, a bike and skateboarding area, and a 25 organization resource fair (which we had the pleasure of being neighbors with two awesome women from Save the Bay and the Rainforest Action Network). Thanks so much to Courtney Lee from Lowell High School for inviting PttP to participate and for everyone involved for making it such a fun and inspiring day!

Setting up, what a beautiful day!

I made herb lemonade with lemons, rosemary and lavender grown in bernal heights to share with thirsty folks roaming the tables.

This performer was amazing and dj jg was great too! I'm drawing a blank on the performers name, but if anyone knows, please drop me a line so I can give him proper credit.

Pedal power!

I had no idea that some of the student's from Ms. Boshoven's biology class at Mission High School that I had helped build a worm bin would be there teaching a workshop about compost! I was so excited that they were there spreading the good word about worms and all the hard work that's been going on with the MHS garden initiative.

Lots of love for the recycled art tree!

Beautiful! Yay!
