By From page A4 | August 22, 2014

The unveiling of a mural celebrating food access and pre-colonial agriculture will take place Tuesday, Aug. 26, at Woodland Community College.
The free event, running from noon to 1 p.m. in the college’s Three Sisters Garden, is free and open to the public.
Professor Melissa Moreno, former Chicano studies student Horacio Segundo Gonzalez, and artists Ruby Chacon and Angel Fajardo will give speeches. Refreshments will be provided.
The mural was created to celebrate the importance of pre-colonial foods (i.e., corn, beans and squash) and acknowledge the struggle surrounding food justice and access to all. It also includes a representation of a native basket in honor of Patwin native history.
