As part of her Gold Award project with Girl Scouts Beyond Bars Troop 1500, Lindsey Martinez worked closely with non-profit farm Urban Roots, where she’d interned the year prior. Her goal for Project Feed the Roots was to set up a perennial garden in an unused space in front of a shed to increase food production.
To further beautify and promote Urban Roots’ mission, she wanted to do a mural on the front of the shed. Playing off the farms original name Hands of the Earth, she sketched out her concept for the mural, incorporating themes of diversity, community, and sustainability. The next step was figuring out how to get the mural on the shed.
As a mentor volunteer with the troop, the troop leader knew my experience with painting through my art-nership, BAMFaktory. Naturally, she reached out to me to ask for advice on how to execute and see if I would like to volunteer with Lindsey’s project. Since I’d yet to have the chance to do a mural, I was ecstatic to have the opportunity to help out.
