Francisco Nava and ChangeMakers have teamed up on a second garden project in San Juan Cosala.
“Monica Masini, Program Coordinator for ChangeMakers asked me if I’d be interested in teaching the young ladies of the program organic gardening. When I learned of ChangeMakers and their goals and mission, I immediately said “yes”.
And so we met on a beautiful parcel of land in San Juan Cosala, loaned to us by Irma Remeno Garcia’s family. Our first meeting was one of introduction and vision sharing.We spoke of past gardening experiences. We spoke of needed materials and what the young ladies would like to learn. We spoke of schedules, timelines and work/family responsibilities. Then we got to work clearing stones and boulders from the recently plowed plot of land where our sustainable garden work will happen.
We are only now just starting to plant the seeds of knowledge,hope and change. We are in need of donations: garden tools, gloves, wheel barrels…anything you can think of that one might need in a community garden.”
