Zapatista Schools & The Remedy Garden Holiday Fundraiser

12/10/2011 5:00 pm

Join us in support of excellent music, outstanding beer, and TWO great causes -a medicinal herb garden for East San Diego & an autonomous Mayan boot workshop in Chiapas, Mexico.!

Boot making workshops have thrived in Zapatista territory since long before the 1994 insurrection and ongoing trainings have taught hundreds of Mayan small farmers to make their own shoes. This fundraiser will re-open an existing boot workshop by replacing a broken sewing machine.

The Remedy Garden in East San Diego is successfully growing a variety of native, European and Chinese medicinal herbs, all organically of course. This fundraiser will purchase containers and other medicine making supplies to provide locally grown traditional medicine to this struggling San Diego community.
