Revision International
November 13, 2013

I had the opportunity to hear about the Revision in my daughters school the first year it began in this neighborhood , I thought this very well anyone to teach this, but this guy is crazy , because a lot of people not interested to learn that. I had a small garden with vegetables and since some people had told me that here in Colorado that was not reached by the cold reap . So this year I did not do it.
The next year I started one classe with Sisters of Color and they told us about the program and introduced us to Eric Kornacki who explained to us the program. This year I did my garden bigger and for once I thought that I was not as crazy as me were saying . It was a wonderful year , reap a lot, I dry chili and squash as my mother had teach me, and I freeze tomato, tomatillo sauce , green beans and some other things. I realized that our earth is rich it gives us a lot if we just learn how to use it . But not only gave me that opportunity this program but I learned much more.
For first time I understood that my habits were not healthy , and that I was just not up damaging myself but also to my family , because I cook for them. This has been the hardest part of achieving change in my house because it is not just changing eating habits but changing thoughts and not only mine but my family too. I have three years changing little things in my house but now I now what do I have to do, I need only time to improve thing by thing, because now I know is possible because if is possible grow food in Denver in our yards is possible to do all the things we want to do.
When I stared talking about the helthy food in my home I have a revolucion in it, no one wanted eat more vegetables or friut, no one wanted make more exercise but my desicion was take. Today my family eat almost all the vegetables we know and now they try very hard to change thing with me togeter. I write this because Revision was de seed to change our habits. I now this is not easy but , I know is possible.
In this moment I am a promotora from revision and I'm very proud of this, because I know if we teach the peple how to grow them oun vegetables, we are planting one more important seed 'HEALTH'
I know I have a long way to go but since I started, and that's the most important.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would put this organization in the world, as its name would have to be international.
