Seed donation in the Sierra Madre of Chiapas, Mexico, in partnership with Sextosol
Sextosol Center in Chiapas
In January 2004, during a seed mission in Chiapas, we gave seeds to the Sextosol Center for Community Action.
The Sexto Sol Center for Community Action contributes to the elimination of poverty and the restoration of the damaged environment by promoting cooperative enterprise, environmentally sound agriculture, appropriate technology and conservation. They work in the Sierra Madre region of Chiapas, México and with repatriated refugee communities in Guatemala.
