You Reap What you Sow!
The Campers almost lost their Crop! They realized that if you don’t weed, water, and feed your crop, they wither and die.
I hope this resonates with you all. I have learned from my students that they only need one thing, really. This is our TIME. We as a community are so awesome with resources of all kinds, but I can tell you one thing: All we need to do is give our youth proper nutrition, and mentorship. Education comes organically if you are hanging out with one of “kids” from the neighborhood. Helping them navigate their future with dignity and hope(or I like to say “weeding out the junk”)will always pay off ten fold.
Believe it or not, I was that kid. I really had just so much energy. But Don and Peg Inman, my neighbors along with really my whole neighbor gave me opportunity make money and be productive, held me accountable, and generally cared for me. And the best way to honor them is to make Kitchen Sage a beacon for all our MISCONNECTED young adults that are looking to their neighborhood for guidance.
I think we all could do a better job weeding through the distractions and get to the heart of the matter. I promise you, the harvest will be huge for our neighborhood! So this week, let’s see what the garden needs. Feel free to email me on your ideas!
To Don, Peg, and all my neighbors:
I am sorry, and thank you for your patience! Kitchen Sage started in your homes.
