I wrote an article about going on a farm and wine tour through Placer County with the company Local Roots, which aims to connect consumers with farmers. It’s all part of that farm-to-fork movement you’ve probably been hearing about. The article appears in the September issue of the Granite Bay View. Read it here. (Photos by Cole Allen).
I wrote an article for YES! magazine’s website on promotoras in Placer County, Calif. These women (and sometimes men) are trusted leaders who help form a new and crucial link between the Latino community and the broader society.
In the photo below, several women and one man attend a weekly meeting in the city of Roseville, led by Maria Cordova (far right), where they share stories and provide emotional support. Cordova is a promotora.
