Planting Seeds to Grow Healthy Communities


How is your green thumb? The Bocacosta women’s committee has green thumbs and has an amazing medical plant garden flourishing. The fertile, volcanic soil of the piedmont region along with lots of sun and amazing rain provides a wonderful foundation for agriculture.

When construction was complete on the community building, the women’s committee asked to utilize space between the clinic and community building for a garden. Wuqu’ Kawoq with the support from CIP/Rotary helped provide the initial start up and now the women’s committee has a strong garden with over 15 different medicinal plants.

Here are the pictures of the women planting and then the beautiful garden only 6 months later.
