Remembering warmer times on this snowy day. A salute to #pollinators, key creatures in our ecosystem. We hope to add #bees to our micro-farm this spring. #urbanfarming #dc
Today we celebrate the life of Rolihlahla “Nelson” Mandela. His story gives us hope, his words made us move, and his actions made us more free; and so may his legacy continue to guide us.
May we remember his call to action: “Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice. Like Slavery and Apartheid, poverty is not natural. It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings. Sometimes it falls on a generation to be great. YOU can be that great generation. Let your greatness blossom.” - #Nelson #Mandela #RIPNelsonMandela #courage #SouthAfrica #Celebrate His #Life
Khari from @edgy_roots got a great response from the public with their sweet potato pies. In a time where #youth #unemployment is above 20% in #DC we have to support them in making their own opportunities. That’s why our program @AyaMarkets helps support youth and other under-represented groups build their businesses and improve our communities.
We had a special performance today from two of our youth who both attend Duke Ellington.
