Wishing for a Healthier Community


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.
