Susan Ji-Young Park. She and famous Algerian Chef Farid Zadi (who we’ll be featuring next month) are on the board of Slow Food Pan-Arab, a division of Slow Food International. Susan is also the California Coordinator for World Food Corps Seed Bank, a program Chef Zadi also avidly supports. A program which gives you the opportunity to help countries suffering from dessertification grow fresh foods.
To find out how you can collect seeds from the foods you eat and where to send them, please visit Susan’s WFCS blog. She has also created visual aids for teachers who are interested in implementing this wonderful community building and experiential learning project in their classrooms.
