EDUCA CORTÉS: THE ART OF WELLNESS AND AGROECOLOGY

In April 2021, we launched the Educa Cortés pilot program: The Art of Wellness and Agroecology in partnership with La Perla Farm School and the plastic artists, Angélica Rivera and Jerome Zayas. Impacting 8 scholarship recipients from the La Perla community, these workshops consisted of interventions on the land promoting agroecology and food security, led by Jerome Zayas. As also Art and Nature workshops, led by Angélica Rivera, where the participants created their self-portrait inspired by nature and a herbarium with medicinal plants that they planted and harvested.

We thank the Iglesia Episcopal Divino Salvador del Viejo San Juan for donating the tent that sheltered us from the sun during the pilot program. This program was achieved thanks to the sponsorship of the Red Nose for Puerto Rico Fund, Comic Relief USA, Fundación Comunitaria de Puerto Rico, Chocolate Cortés and Chocobar Cortés.
