Last Thursday (November 29th), the members of Huerta del Valle had our first official community meeting, consisting of Maria, past community garden participants (Very Interested Persons), and Pitzer in Ontario volunteers. We all discussed what we thought should be the core values of Huerta del Valle and came up with this list:
Values of Huerta del Valle: Respect, Communication, Responsibility, Dedication, Harmony, Listening, Sharing, Support, Love, Humility, and Good Conduct.
Valores de Huerta del Valle: Respeto, Comunicación, Responsabilidad, Dedicación, Armonía, Escuchar, Compartir, Apoyo, Humildad, y Comportamiento.
María updated everyone on the work we've done in the past few months -- working with the city and receiving funding through the Heal Zone Grant from Kaiser Permanente. It was a great experience for everyone involved to come together and share their thoughts about Huerta del Valle.
