Hamilton students in Global Feminisms and Gender and Environment visited Nuestras Raices, a grassroots Puerto Rican farm community in Holyoke, Mass. on Sept. 26. Nuestras Raices promotes economic, human and community development in Holyoke, a town whose population is 40 percent Latino/Latina. They engage in projects relating to food, agriculture and the environment while building cultural pride in the local Puerto Rican community.

Nuestras Raices held their annual Fall Festival over the weekend and Hamilton students toured the 26-acre community garden and ate locally grown food while enjoying Puerto Rican music and dance. Students were accompanied by Hamilton Professors Anne E. Lacsamana and Joyce M. Barry.
