Home Gardens for Collaboration and Learning

Greetings GlobalGiving supporters,

The implementation of the home gardens is going well and has contributed to generating savings in the families’ economy since they have been able to consume what they produce. The participation of women has included a process of capacity-building in the use of organic compost, biofertilizers in their gardens, care of seedlings, and workshops on recovering traditional knowledge around the use of medicinal plants.

It has not been easy, since there are many shortages and difficulties in the communities as the cost of basic goods has drastically increased. Concern about Covid-19 also remains high in the communities, since there is limited access to adequate medical attention.

Despite this, we have been following up on the gardens and continuing with the cycle that had already begun to ensure the continuous production in the family gardens. We also recently held a series of meetings with the Universidad del Pueblo in San José Chiltepec to implement a new batch of gardens, where the process will be accompanied by students. The director of this institution is convinced of this collaboration with the Fondo Ambiental Regional de la Chinantla, Oaxaca. A.C. (FARCO) and EcoLogic will enhance the students' practical training as agroecology technicians and link them to rural communities. 

We are set to begin another 10 gardens in the coming weeks. We are thrilled about this collaboration and are looking forward to responding to the interest of teachers, communities, and students to continue implementing family gardens in rural communities and seeing the fruits of perseverance and the work we do in the region.

We send you our warmest greetings and sincere appreciation for all the support and interest you have given us during all this time. We look forward to the next update!
