First of all I’m apartment hunting, which most of you can attest to how arduous and daunting a task that can be. I found a place I really like and hope to be moving by this weekend if all goes well. While the apartment hunt has monopolized the majority of my free time, I am also heavily involved with my church, Agape International Spiritual Center, where I sing in the choir.
I’ve also become more instrumental in my new position as Programs Manager at RootDown LA. A non-profit organization that works tirelessly to educate communities on nutrition, growing their own food and most importantly, getting kids to eat their veggies!
This is unlike any job I have ever had. While most of my past jobs had me suited and booted behind a desk click clacking away on a keyboard, RootDown has me feeling like a kid again. I basically get to work out of the beautiful historical Ralph Bunche House, play in the kitchen and the garden all day, while teaching children and adults in the South LA community how to make healthy foods taste great!
This is what I did at work today…
It is MY DREAM JOB to say the least and there are no limitations on what we can do or how far we can go.
I work with a bunch of “Yes” men and women. And not in the way you’re thinking. They are “Yes” people because they believe everything is possible and every idea is a spark of creativity and imagination waiting to emerge as something incredible and beneficial to the planet.
I haven’t forgotten about my beloved Tyme2Eat. I am merely expanding my awareness of all the potential outlets the food and farming industry has to offer. And I will be back to posting regularly once everything settles down.
This is just the beginning of what is yet to unfold. So please be patient and stay tuned because I will back with more recipes, photos, videos, gardening tips and even some food products for sale!
