In the farming town of Shafter, in Kern County, kids are playing outside Sequoia elementary school. On the other side of the playground is an organic community garden where some people are picking vegetables.
“We are just cutting little zucchinis because the season is coming to pick them,” says Shafter resident Rodrigo Romo.
Anabel Marquez adds, “It is time to take them out. We are using them to make food, to cook.”
