Valley Verde will be inviting 50 young latinas and their mothers to have a shared experience with an influential latina female leader. Through this conversation with Dolores Huerta, we aim to provide latina mothers another opportunity to inspire their daughters to follow their dreams.
Proceeds from this event will support Valley Verde in helping hundreds of low-income families learn to grow healthy food and share that knowledge with others by promoting the widespread cultivation of organic home vegetable gardens.
