Being a transgender teen in a southern state has it's challenges. For years I used volunteerism as an outlet for community and friendship. My continued work with our city helped me get a better understanding of the problems and kinks that could be worked out. I now work with The Foundation for Sustainable Families aiding youth who often are at risk and developmentally delayed. We also have a farm property to harvest food for hungry families. The last stepping stone to help will be a playground for children of all abilities to play, socialize, and work on core motor skills.
Dana West This idea has a lot of potential. I work on a farm and have seen the amazing impact our fruits and veggies bring to the community. We, too, are in Florida. Most of the year, every saturday we have The Saturday Morning Market. People come from many different cities to our city's market for food, art, music, and the sunny bright atmosphere. I know that markets like our are very competitive and in turn have limits on how many people can sell the same or similar product. (food included). My question for you is how do you plan on bringing your truck to places like this without disrupting the business that local farmers and workers have depended on?
