Greetings! 

Myself and fellow sustainable agriculture classmates have teamed up with the non- profit Corazon to establish a community garden and education center in the city of Tijuana.

Corazon’s mission statement: Building community by strengthening families, enabling service, promoting self-sufficiency, and inspiring mutually beneficial relationships across borders

With this garden we hope to foster a reciprocal community, a free space where many things are possible. It is run for the community. The community maintains the space and keeps it clean and organized. You are invited to consider yourself part of that community: to take initiative, to transform the space in a positive way, to otherwise improve the space, to bring what you think others may appreciate, and take what you want. We would like to educate this neighborhood on harvesting organic produce and sustaining the land. 

We strongly believe that access to fresh local produce should NOT be an economic equation. That’s why we’re here at Kickstarter: to connect with both our local community and the larger sphere of individuals who are committed to supporting our cause. Our funding goal of $300  will provide us the means to purchase tools, renovate the land, and educate the community to keep this land sustainable. 

All money will go directly into maintenance of the new space. As intimidating as the expenses are, we are hopeful and thrilled about the possibilities the new space will bring.

Thank you kindly,

Jill Solomon
