8. Bayview Seedfolks Project Overview:
- In Seedfolks, 13 diverse individuals (people of different ages, races, professions, and genders) tell their stories, and together, these stories create a larger story of how a vacant lot was turned into a thriving community garden.
- We will select positive leaders in the Bayview community and tell their stories in our own version of Seedfolks. When we compile our stories of these leaders, we will be able to tell a larger story and how each of the leaders played a role in the story.
- During the last week of school, we will publish our book, and (hopefully!) each student will receive a copy of the finished product.
