Dear Supporting Congregations*,

I am excited to share this short (5 min) video about EPES’ community gardening project. In the video, community health workers share their experiences creating the garden and they report how this collective learning process has helped them to better face the pandemic, strengthening ties between women, sowing hope and cultivating solidarity. We have been in strict quarantine again for the past five weeks and it is heartening to see how important the community garden is in these very difficult times. The video is a good complement to the article in Living Lutheran about EPES’ gardening project.

Gracias for your love and support!
