ChangeMakers Lake Chapala

The Garden Project

Five of the ChangeMakers young women — Jasibe, Juliana, Vanesa, Maria José, & Diana — are working with our Program Coordinator Mónica and her husband Axel to begin a second community garden.  This large fenced garden is in San Juan Cosalá on land loaned to us by Inspiradora Irma Rameño.  We are fortunate to have Francisco Nava, Master Gardener and educator, to teach our young women about the needs of the plants and seeds they are growing, how to prepare the land, which plants need more alkaline PH or acid PH, etc. 

Watch for a video soon by Francisco on our Facebook page to learn more about this new garden project.  For now, we could use some “seed money” to purchase tools, hoses, gloves, and other garden essentials.  They are working now with one shovel!
