2009 Art and Change Grant – $2,500

Betty will create Gifts From Mother Earth which will marry the folk art of gardening with quilting and fabric design. Celebrating West Philadelphia, youth and elders will share stories of medicinal plant remedies and build a forum for their preservation. Creating these quilts will empower the community and allow the memories of women and family members who posses the knowledge of medicinal plants and their uses to continue on through generations.
