After our successful initiatives with Mesa Justa Nuquí, a project to provide free meals and groceries to those most affected by the food shortages and skyrocketing prices in Nuquí, Chocó on the Afro-indigenous pacific coast of Colombia, we have decided to launch a community garden that aims to educate young people through the wisdom of elders in the community on traditional farming practices and ancestral knowledge of food and medicine plants from this region. We are also working towards longer term sustainability supporting food security to individuals and families in Nuquí offering free healthy plant-based foods grown here. We plan to host workshops with elders and young people to to encourage the transfer of this plant wisdom that has been especially difficult in the recent generations to continue living and surviving through capitalism and colonization.
We are collecting support to build the structures on the 10mx15m of land we have secured which currently has no access to water or electricity. We are clearing the land to create the physical structures like sheds and roof covered areas, simple toilets, raised beds, and install a water system to start planting seeds with the community.
Our goal is to host our next Mesa Justa Nuquí with the fruits of our community labor at the end of 2021.
Estamos recolectando apoyo para construir las estructuras en los 10mx15m de terreno que hemos asegurado y que actualmente no tiene acceso a agua ni electricidad. Estamos limpiando la tierra para crear las estructuras físicas como áreas cubiertas en techos, baños simples, estructuras para plantas elevadas e instalar un sistema de agua para comenzar a plantar semillas con la comunidad.
