Planting Seeds of Caring for the Earth in Children’s Hearts
During March we hosted over a hundred children from local school communities in need of love. We shared experiences like dance & theater, visual arts with tumeric crayons and leaves, mixing soil and growing foods, and sharing fresh meals they helped to prepare. These loving exchanges really inspire us to keep going!
We are greatful for the chance to share planting, arts, healthy cooking, and love with all the kids!
55 College Students had a Plenitud Service Learning Experience
We had the blessing to share our community with groups of students from Northeastern University, Loyola Marymount University, Indiana University, Eckerd College and University of San Diego-Roosevelt College. They received training in sustainability skills and helped us serve our community partners, and now they are ready to spread their skills back home. For one week with each group we got to share our lifestyle of simple living and tried to elevate our thoughts together to care for each other. A big shout out to all of the participants, we had a blast serving together with all of you!
Thanks to Northeastern, LMU, Indiana, Eckerd, and UCSD for living the Plenitud Experience!
The Organoponico Manual is Ready for Publication
Our team has been working on this publication about applying agroecology and permaculture for a few years now, and it has been inspiring to see how many farmers, professors, researchers, and collaborators like Puerto Rico Sea Grant (PRSG), have come together to get it done. Stay tuned next month for how to get your hands on a copy.
Cyndi, an artist at PSRG, works on the layout for the manual.
