Garden Volunteer Day at the Alice Fong Yu Alternative School

This past year we have donated plants and worked with garden educators and parents at the Alice Fong Yu school garden to grow culturally relevant vegetables and herbs.

With a team including garden coordinator @david_pon@cjadallah, parent volunteers, and kids ranging from elementary through middle school we planted a winter garden, complete with greens and vegetables like Yu Mai Tsai, or A Choy, Taichung snow peas, and Gai Lan. We also established a perennial bed with Ju hua and Jo Tsai, or Chinese chives. Extra plants were potted up in recycled Chinese newspaper pots 🌱

It was truly a joy to work with multiple generations in the garden and to have conversations and connection with our cultural plants!
