El Valle Women’s Collaborative’s Bueno Para Todos Project
The El Valle Women’s Collaborative promotes health, wellness and economic development in the El Valle rural community. One of EVWC’s largest projects is Bueno Para Todos cooperative. Bueno Para Todos, a BIPOC-led farm with ally supporters, is creating an edible food forest to develop a local food hub. The food forest will provide access to foods that would otherwise take one hour of drive time to get to. BPT members draw upon ancestral knowledge for farming practices, care for water, medicines and foods. BPT has a partnership with the United World College and provides education to local residents and students.
