Centro Latino Americano’s (formerly Huerto de la Familia) garden staff will discuss the scope of the organization’s work, and how our seven (7) community gardens across Lane County create spaces for Latinx and immigrant families to grow their own organic produce and thrive together, in community. Staff will describe the services and resources provided to program members, as well as the ways our program members take on teaching and leadership roles in our community.
