The Lake Apopka Farmworker Memorial Quilt amplifies those voices lost....let's do our part to ensure no more quilt squares are needed. Post #8


Former Lake Apopka Farmworkers Geraldean Matthew and Linda Lee in front of one of the memorial quilts. "...she [Geraldean Matthew] was most proud of the Lake Apopka Farmworker Memorial Quilt Project, which she helped inspire, and of the book Fed Up: The High Costs of Cheap Food by author Dale Slongwhite, which captured the stories of some eleven former farmworkers and community members..." ( from the article: Apopka loses an iconic farmworker advocate, The Apopka Voice, September 11, 2016.) Let's do our part as consumers of the food they produced and others produce now. Let's really hear the farmworkers when they say one piece of a fair food system is eliminating the use of toxic pesticides in agriculture.
