#Mahogany Monday: Marlie in the Garden

Monday, June 6, 2011

Our church held service yesterday at Paul Quinn College's urban farm in part to bring in volunteers to pull weeds and in part to support to school's effort to revive its community, which is considered a "food desert" meaning healthy, affordable food is not readily available in the area. There are no grocery stores in the surrounding neighborhoods. Produce from the farm, which was developed on an old football field, is distributed to residents.

It's never too early to introduce children to community activism. Marlie dug up weeds and helped her mommy pick some mint for brewing tea.

*Mahogany Monday is hosted by Darcel at The Mahogany Way and shows how mothers of color live a natural, mahogany lifestyle (i.e. breastfeeding pics, homeschooling/unschooling pics, babywearing pics, clothdiapering, adhering to a vegetarian/vegan diet pics, etc.)

Cool! I like "Mahogany Monday", beautiful alliteration amongst all the cheesey alliteration us bloggers engage in. That's cool that you got Marlie out volunteering at such a young age. You're an inspiration for the rest of us!
