CHAA’s Collaboration with El Cerrito Community Garden Network featured in area media


CHAA’s Tibetan Community Wellness Advocate, Tsering Yangkey, appeared in an article in Contra Costa Times about a pop-up garden she has helped establish in El Cerrito’s Fairmont Park. As the article notes, some of the most active Fairmont Park gardeners include 10 to 15 Tibetan immigrant families who work with Tsering through CHAA’s API Connections program. El Cerrito, Albany, Berkeley and Oakland have a small but thriving Tibetan community.
