Environmental Ambassadors take the Lake Apopka Toxic Tour

An amazing group of young people from Gainesville, FL came to Apopka on Friday, July 17 for a Lake Apopka Toxic Tour.

Nkwanda Jah led the group of 5 students in the Environmental Ambassadors program, opening their eyes to know ideas and new experiences.

We shared the histories and stories of farmworkers in Apopka and Black history in the U.S.

Former farmworkers Linda Lee and Evelyn helped lead the tour and shared their personal stories. We are grateful for their willingness to share and educate the next generations each and every time.

Linda is shown here demonstrating to the students what it is like to be an orange picker. 

You all are AWESOME and we love you!
