Self-sustaining Micro-Greens! Our visiting to Wind River Project.

This weekend we had the pleasure of visiting the Wind River Project, co-owned by Ryan, one of our Living Islands volunteers, to learn about Microgreens, Hydroponics, and food security for small communities. We were joined by some of our oldest supporters, former Board President Neil Berl and his wife Andrea. It was great to see them again.

Our long-term plan is to find funding to do this for the small communities in the outer atolls in Micronesia. The Wind River Project is pretty amazing and has a great model for almost complete self-sufficiency in a farming project.

Census 2020 – Time to get Counted

Utopia PDX and Empowering Pacific Islander Communities have partnered with us to ensure that our local Pacific Islander communities are informed about the Census in 2020 and understand why it is so important for us to be counted!

Last Thursday, December 26th, 2019, we conducted our first Census 2020 Workshop in our local Marshallese community leaders in Salem.

It was a great way to end 2019, and an inspiring way to kick start 2020!
