Kyunghwa Shon Vegetable Kids

I would like to jump one step more by dealing with national issue, child obesity with the community in Chicago. As Michelle Obama announced, it is one of big problems to solve for American future. Therefore, I would like to approach the issue by educational, environmental way; making community garden with school kids, teaching the importance of eating vegetables, giving the ownership to them in abandoned place. I will collect and decorate the stones with kids to make appropriate vegetable garden and use them as a fence of their own small garden. The vegetable garden will become the workplace to learn nature such as the growth of lives and to give their salad food. It allows kids to experience exciting feeling when they grow vegetables by themselves and eat them. I believe that the project will be a good approach to the national issue, food democracy and environmental issue, recycling the useless community place.
