The celebration of NooRoz

The celebration of NooRoz (the Persian New Year) seemed fitting as Spring had arrived in Riverside. Thank you to R'Garden for opening the community garden for us to enjoy. A special thank you to Deborah Paggliacia from UCR's CAFE and Global Food Initiative for coordinating this event and bringing so many people together. Also, Rohan and other volunteers from Highlander Chef, Audrey from Science Ambassadors and Evelyn representing R'Garden. And, of course, a huge thank you to our wonderful Afghan families for sharing this holiday with us and their delicious food.
