Corazones Contentos Plants New Seeds

By Elliot Blumberg 28 July, 2015

Pablo and Rachel prepare to bring the donated food down in Centro Mamoní’s workshop. Talks with Isabel, El Valle’s teacher, were productive and positive. Pablo unwraps the food donations for the town. The students enthusiastically participate in storing food donations. Soon, this town will be nutritionally independent! Marcelino explains the success and productivity of his garden to Rachel and Pablo.

Today, in the ongoing effort to promote food security in the Mamoní Valley, co-directors of food production and community management - Pablo Tocalini and Rachel Worthington - ventured out to El Valle to start talks with the local teacher about building community gardens there in the future. The plan is to replicate the success of San José’s community gardens in every community. They also spoke to locals about their own agricultural ventures and to get the town buzzing about the prospect of a public garden. Finally, the duo distributed food donated from the International School of Panama. We hope to find contented hearts in El Valle soon enough!
