Our temporary field director Memo Baca Acuario has been looking after the team in Pluma while Jessica Pantoja-Sanders and Ryan are away. And he's done an amazing job! Last week the families carefully sorted through every green coffee bean to check for a burrowing bug called broca, a tiny critter that is definitely not welcome in NZ. It's a long and tedious task that requires a lot of concentration. A huge shout out to our Mexico team for your continued dedication to delivering delicious brews here in Aotearoa NZ! #labroca #plumahidalgo #plumacoffeeproject #saveplumacoffee #disabilityrights #disabilityinclusion #sortingcoffee

Today TLF Field Director, Memo Baca Acuario, ran an organics workshop on a local organic coffee farm. Getting out and about is a great way to not only promote sustainable and organic agriculture, but also support the workshop attendees to grow in confidence, independence and coffee farming skills! Did we also mention that the first batch of Pluma coffee is officially on its way to Aotearoa NZ?!?! Watch this space!

On Monday, Robbie Francis had the pleasure of speaking at RYLA Waihola - a Rotary programme designed to help young people develop their team work and communication skills and fulfil their potential as leaders. Robbie shared about her journey with Lucy Leg, disability rights, social justice, leadership and The Lucy Foundation. Rotary have been great supporters of The Lucy Foundation since day dot, and raised a whopping $4,000 for the Pluma Coffee Project in 2017! #disabilityrights #disabilityinclusion #rotarynz #rylawaihola #ryla #rotarybalclutha #livingwithlucy #plumacoffeeproject

Being creative is therapeutic for many different people. During these TLF workshops, participants get the chance to use natural tools and make their own paint pigments from things like coffee, cochanio, beetroot and herbs. These workshops aren't just for fun, though we have a lot of it! Our expert artist, Marco Daniel Galguera Perez (Daniel Xants), demonstrates different techniques that also help with movement, coordination and strength.
