FWAF AT THE 2014 FLORIDA FOLK FESTIVAL


FWAF was a part of the Florida Folk Life Area at the 62nd annual Florida Folk Festival in White Springs, FL. 


 The Quilts were on display, along with information and the book Fed Up: The High Costs of Cheap Food.  Former nursery & farmworker, Reina Zelaya, did a cooking demonstration of Honduran recipes all 3 days of the festival - very popular!




Former Lake Apopka Farmworker Linda Lee, former citrus worker Blanca Moreno, and pesticide project coordinator Jeannie Economos spoke on a panel each day - Friday, Saturday and Sunday - about farmworkers in Florida and the Quilt Project. 





 The Quilts were a big hit at the Folk Life tent at the Festival.
