Image description: Vertical undulating orange line with yellow letters that read heritagegarden.uic.edu Fall 2021. A yellow horizontal stripe towards the top reads in green letters Harvest Festival Planting seeds of Knowledge and Fostering Resilience. The text with the event details is listed in a white background. There are two pictures in the poster in a circular shape surrounded by a circular green border made up of an outside green line and an inside set of green dots. One image in the top right corner is the profile of a person sitting on a raised bed harvesting lemon balm. The second image in the lower left hand corner features three students holding recently harvested corn. Corn stalks are visible in the background. The logos for the Centers for Cultural Understanding and Social Change, the UIC Latino Cultural Center, and the UIC Heritage Garden are at the bottom.

• How does planting seeds of knowledge rooted in social justice foster inclusion?
• How can our collective remembering be a tool of resilience?
