We've been so busy fundraising and sharing the TLF story that we forgot to post photos taken a couple of weeks back! This was a really neat Track 2 workshop run by Catalina Merino Varela on how to grow and harvest vegetables for eating. A key TLF focus for 2019 is not only looking after the environment, but personal health and wellbeing too.
Hemos sido tan ocupados haciendo recaudaciones de fondos y compartiendo la historia de LFL que olvidamos compartirles éstas fotos que fueron tomados hace un par de semanas. Catalina dirigió este taller de Vía Dos, el objetivo de cuál era enseñar los estudiantes como criar y cosechar vegetales para comer. El foco de LFL para el año de 2019 es no solamente cuidar el medio ambiente pero también la salúd y el bienestar personal de la gente en nuestra comunidad.
An excellent write up on The Lucy Foundation in this month's issue of MiNDFOOD magazine. To help support our work, simply order your home and business coffee beans through Able Coffee Collaborative (link below). For every kg of coffee you buy, $3 is donated to our Pluma Coffee Project in Mexico... it really is that easy!
Here's to the wonderful wāhine who make The Lucy Foundation tick! Did you know 80% of our TLF crew, from Mexico to New Zealand, are women? We couldn't do it without them or our amazing tribe of wāhine supporters. On a side note, today and tomorrow Grace Stratton, Robbie Francis and Romelli Graciela are hosting a TLF stall at the Fairfield Conference (ethical trade) at AUT. If you're in Auckland you can catch Robbie presenting on the TLF story at 1:30pm (Saturday).

Mmmm... freshly processed green Pluma coffee! The TLF families are working hard to sort the good beans from the bad beans, so that we can have a delicious brew right here in Aotearoa New Zealand. All of the families are paid above the local rate for this work, including disabled family members. We believe pay equality is super important, regardless of ability or disability.
Help us create more equal work opportunities for more disabled people and their families by donating to The Lucy Foundation today!
