St. Paul's Monthly Mission Focus

Missions Chair: Lynette Wedig




Indigenous Women's Vegetable Gardening &
Leadership Project in Guatemala

The goal for this mission is to train women to grow gardens, produce food, and to develop leadership skills.  The project aims to support Mayan women's efforts to restore traditional farming methods and livelihoods, their lands and ecologies.  In this community-led project, 40 women will be trained by agronomists in agroecological farming methods, and will establish communal/backyard vegetable gardens.  They will develop strong leadership skills through training and practice and will be able to train others in their communities.

Thank you for supporting this important mission!
