Vida Raiz (life-root), in partnership with Pura Vida Church of Esterillos, Costa Rica, worked with their community through organic gardening to provide food, education, and income to families. Esterillos is one of the worst areas of Costa Rica in terms of education and job opportunities, especially for women. Most of the population are day laborers barely making subsistence wages.
Funds donated purchased the supplies, soil, seeds, and seedlings to start home-based and community gardens, creating margin in life for families.
$40 – Soil & composted manure, $80 – Construction materials & seedlings for 1 garden, $200 – 1 family's garden materials, $1000 – 1 Community's Garden materials
