May the coffee plants be healthy and happy! In last week's workshop the team spread compost around the plants with the help of Don Bernardino's family. This is to improve the health of the plants.

It's International Coffee Day! A day for all coffee lovers to reflect on all the aroha that goes in to one little cup. But there's a problem, coffee prices are at a historical low and many coffee farmers are struggling.

The International Coffee Organisation is calling on people to sign a #coffeepledge that calls for a living wage for coffee farmers.

You can find out more about the coffee crisis and sign the pledge here: www.internationalcoffeeday.org/

¡Hoy es el Día Internacional del Café! Un día para que todos los amantes del café piensen en todo el amor que llena cada taza del café. Pero hay un problema, los precios del café están en un nivel más bajo que nunca, y muchos caficultores están luchando.

La Organización Internacional del Café pide a la gente que firme un #coffeepledge que exija un salario digno para los caficultores.

Puedes enterarte más sobre la crisis del café y firmar el compromiso aquí:

As young people and their allies strike for climate change around the world, we thought we'd share a flashback Friday...

"Because respect for Papatūānuku is at the heart of what we do at TLF, the team in Pluma Hidalgo recently held an inclusive community workshop on medicinal plants. Sofía Díaz Hernandez taught everyone how to identify local plants and use them to make a balm for aches.

Como respetar a la Madre Tierra es tan importante para nosotros, el equipo de Pluma Hidalgo recientemente llevó a cabo un taller comunitario inclusivo sobre plantas medicinales. Sofía Díaz Hernández enseñó a todos cómo identificar las plantas locales y usarlas para hacer una pomada para dolores musculares."
