El Vivero Muy Otro- Medicine for our Bodies; Medicine for the Earth
Medicine for Our Bodies; Medicine for the Earth! Support the nursery at the heart of our agroecology, food sovereignty and medicinal plant work!
At Schools for Chiapas, we understand that climate change abatement and fighting the pandemic go hand-in-hand. As the pandemic spikes, the climate crisis brings droughts, fires, and most recently, floods to Chiapas. Taking care of Mother Earth is essential to our survival. Therefore, our Vivero Muy Otro (Very Different Nursery) in San Cristóbal de Las Casas continues to be a central component of our work in diversifying food sources, protecting water, nurturing biodiversity, recovering herbal traditions, and producing medicines in the Bodega de Salud/Warehouse of Health.
Throughout this pandemic, the incredible team at the Vivero Muy Otro continues to sow biodiversity in plantings of perennial medicinal foods and herbs, water-protecting trees, soil-nurturing legumes, and more. This year, our focus on health has led to the development of dozens of local medicines, and experiments in nourishing superfoods such as blueberries! Your Gift of Change will support the continued propagation and distribution of vital protector plants for medicine and food, for water and for life in Zapatista territories.
