Report from Living Roots

This fall, with the funds raised through Global Giving, Living Roots will be collaborating with Raiz del Fondo, a La Paz, Mexico based community garden non-profit to offer training and support for the secondary school in San Javier.  Students will plant a model garden, learn water saving strategies, composting and seed saving techniques.  Ultimately, students will be able to eat from their garden and share tips and tricks with their families on ranches throughout the region.

We are so honored to be working with such an amazing community. We are getting a great deal of participation from community members as well as local and international organizations working in the area. 

About Project Reports

Project Reports on GlobalGiving are posted directly to by Project Leaders as they are completed, generally every 3-4 months. To protect the integrity of these documents, GlobalGiving does not alter them; therefore you may find some language or formatting issues.

If you donate to this project or have donated to this project, you will get an e-mail when this project posts a report. You can also subscribe for reports via e-mail without donating or by subscribing to this project's RSS feed.


Microproject Disclaimer

Every microproject is intended to use the donations it receives in accordance with its stated description; however, it is important to provide project leaders with the flexibility to maximize the potential benefit from the donations they receive. This means that your donation may be used as a part of the main project that supports this microproject, specifically Training and Support for Grassroots Organizations. In this event, the project leader is required to post an update to the microproject detailing the results and reasons behind this change.

If you or any other donor is unhappy with the way their funds have been used, he or she can reallocate their donation using the GlobalGiving guarantee.
