May 11 - Connecting with Vermont's Migrant Workers: El Viaje Mas Caro and the Huertas (Garden) Project

El Viaje Mas Caro (The Most Costly Journey) is an ethnographic cartooning project. Julia Doucet, a nurse at Middlebury’s Open Door Clinic, will talk about collaborative storytelling to mitigate loneliness, isolation, and despair among Latin American migrant farm workers on Vermont dairy farms.

The Huertas Project enables Latino/a migrant farmworkers and families to access culturally familiar, healthy and local foods. Naomi Wolcott-MacCausland, Migrant Health Coordinator at UVM Extension, will provide insight into food access challenges for immigrant farmworkers particularly in Northern Vermont as well as how Huertas aims to increase access to culturally familiar vegetables and herbs.

Join us on May 11, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. at the Lawrence Memorial Library in Bristol. This free event is hosted by the One World Library Project.
