MBF Begins Reforestation Planning for 2022 & Workshops
By Monica Missrie - Project Leader
Organic farming in Ejido El Rosario
Alternare and four local communities are planning to plant 21,000 trees on 20 hectares this coming summer. The trees will come from several of the twenty collective nurseries (school and community) in the San Juan Zitácuaro micro-watershedthat are being maintained and overseen by the communities and Alternare.
During the first quarter of this year Alternare held 20 workshops in four Indigenous communities teaching participants how to manage waste properly and make organic fertilizer, Additionally, workshops on community savings and loans, bread-making, and food and preserve preservation, were held, targeting women so they have financial resources available. A woman told us that thanks to the workshops she has learned not only to make food but that she can sell it to others and have a little extra money for herself and her family. One cistern was built in Crescencio Morales Indigenous community along with a water distribution line benefiting 231 families.
MBF, Alternare and the indigenous communities in Michoacan and the State of Mexico thank you for your support!
