Our amazing summer youth employment and education program 2009 is coming to a close, and while I'm going to miss the awesome students something terrible, I feel really grateful for getting to know them, and so proud of the work we were able to accomplish this summer in just a handful of weeks. We harvested and distributed 1,497 lbs of local (predominantly from San Francisco) produce, fostered relationships with four distribution sites, took part in the building and/or maintenance of six community gardens, canned 65 jars of homemade jam, met lots of new folks in our community, and each made five new friends.
Thanks so much to Brenaja, Burton, Kevin, Kristine and Yuwen for putting up with a nutty boss, an ever fluctuating schedule, and a new challenge at every turn. You guys will do great things, I just know it.
