LEAF 2017 at Slide Ranch!
On May 5-May 7th interns from all 9 programs were invited to participate in the 17th Annual LEAF (Leadership and Environmental Action Forum). This event is in celebration of interns leadership, stewardship and service throughout the year. Interns camped out for 3 days and 2 nights and got to participate in loads of activities with Slide Ranch staff including; goat milking, tide exploration, beach clean ups, garden tending, cheese making, and more!
We had a great time taking our youth out to the beautiful outdoors to continue to foster a deeper connection to our coasts. Here is what one of our SLZ participants had to say about the trip!
“My favorite part of the trip was having a whole day to do different activities like milking goats and making cheese. Because San Lorenzo is a food desert it was quite inspiring to be able to take matters in my own hands and make food in which I know exactly what is going in it. Going to this farm was very inspiring and made me want to someday own a farm or at least going Near-o/Zero Waste. I’ll take away new experiences, like building a tent. I’ve always had them made!” – Jessica, SLZ Intern
