Last Saturday at the South Kern Arts and Culture Festival in Weedpatch, we asked participants to imagine what would improve the quality of life and health in their community. After drawing and writing their wishes on a flag, they planted them in our Wishing Flag garden under the shade of a nearby tree. At the end of the day, community members planted over a hundred wishes. Here are some of them.
The Arvin Family Resource Center provides valuable support to parents, children, and other community members. We are fortunate to be working with more warm and generous people. Last Friday, Michelle and I arrived with snacks and supplies, and gathered more story triangles for our imminent sculpture piece. Here are some pictures of participants’ work. We will definitely be back at the Family Resource Center again soon.
