WOMEN MAKE THE VALLEY GREEN

Posted by on May 23, 2012 in Women's Health Education | Comments Off

Thanks to the work of the Women’s Health Education Program (EBS) the Valley is much more green! Two women’s groups in their third and final year in the program came together to address the problem of deforestation, and in March, began planning a community project. They heard from a horticulturalist on the importance of reforestation, which trees are best in the Valley, and how to plant trees correctly. The women then secured tree donations from The National Forresty Association (INAB) and AGRECUA, a local construction company in the area. They then teamed up with kids from the local schools to plant over 350 trees in Tierra Colorada Baja and Llanos de Pinal. Not only did these women help their local environment, but they also created an educational experience for the local students.
