SUMMER PROGRAM 2021: THE ART OF WELLNESS AND AGROECOLOGY

We expanded the Educa Cortés program: The Art of Wellness and Agroecology for 41 scholarship students during the 4 weeks of July 2021, integrating the Carnegie Library of Old San Juan as a third educational space. The La Perla Farm School, the Carnegie Library and the exhibit halls of Fundación Cortés received participants between the ages of 5-18, who received a La Borinqueña comic book, art materials, gardening materials, among many other things. Reading and the values ​​of Fundación Cortés were actively integrated as they had the opportunity to attend the following workshops: Wellness and Mental Health, Agroecology, Art and Nature. We thank the Chocobar Cortés team for providing snacks and always supporting us in our projects. All this was possible thanks to the sponsorship of the Peter Alfond Foundation.
