Another amazing day with the students enthusiastically embracing the simple life style in the town of Tecuanipan. The Center built by Enlaces Comunitarios over seven years is a small wonder of sustainability and cooperation with nature. Arturo offered inspiring descriptions of the methods used to preserve water and repurpose almost everything so there is little waste. It is a story of hope and wisdom amidst the constant and depressing news of climate change.
The students helped to shift compost, nurture newly planted vegetables, paint a mural, and prepare for an art project with the town’s children. They meet their host families and walked off to their first night with them.
