Artwork Interpretation: "Community Water"

The design is inspired by her experience volunteering with Community Crops for the past 3 months. CROPS stands for Combining Resources, Opportunities, and People for Sustainability. Their mission is to help families grow food for themselves and the community.

"Community Water" focuses on the interconnection of community and food. This piece specifically highlights the importance of growing food locally and the ability to know exactly where your food comes from.
