Bilingual stories: Farm Hub offers content in Spanish and English
Starting with the Spring 2019 newsletter, the Farm Hub is offering a selection of articles in Spanish and English. The articles reflect a variety of topics from research trials, strategies and techniques in farming, to what is growing this season and programs.
This quarter’s newsletter includes the following bilingual articles:
“Publishing bilingual content increases our organization’s commitment to Language Justice and is an exciting development for the farm,” says Adriana Pericchi, the Farm Hub’s Language Justice Coordinator.
“We’re around, work in, and live in communities in which Spanish is spoken, so it’s important that Spanish speaking people and growers have access to the Farm Hub’s stories. Many of the people in our region who hold agricultural expertise and are eager to learn about our developments are most comfortable reading the Spanish language.”
The articles were translated by Caracol Language Cooperative, a Brooklyn-based worker-owned company that provides Spanish-language translation and interpretation services with a focus on social justice.
Here at the Farm Hub, multilingual spaces are spearheaded by the Farm Hub’s Language Justice team, a six-person team of staff who are bilingual in English and Spanish and who, among their other job responsibilities, provide regular translation and interpretation for meetings and events at the Farm Hub.
