We Continue to Create Resilient Communities
Our partner school, Luis Muñoz Marín High School, in Añasco has an eco-creative space that we have been developing with their students. This month we were blessed to install a 2,000-gallon cistern along with a solar-powered pump and an educational mural. This project is possible thanks to a grant awarded by the Community Foundation of Puerto Rico as well as the collaboration of graduate engineering students from the University of Cornell and the University of Puerto Rico, Mayagüez Campus. On May 2, 2019 we will have a free workshop on the topic of rainwater harvesting. It will be offered at the school and will be open to the community.
Students from Cornell University and the University of Puerto Rico collaborated in the installation of the rainwater collection system.

¡Abrázame y Vayamos Juntos!
Plenitud PR participated during the 2019 Easter Youth Event "Abrázame y Vayamos Juntos" of the Episcopal Church Diocese of Puerto Rico. Our young farmers Rebekah and Daimer provided their knowledge to more than 90 young people who learned about healthy soil, planting, the benefits of plants, and the consumption of vegetables. They even tasted golden milk made with tumeric! Thanks to members of the Youth Ministry Leaders for their support during this activity.
