Meanwhile, back in #Bluefields, #Nicaragua, our Garden Towers are being installed and planted! Thanks again to Garden Tower Project for the towers and your time investment with us. Centro de Derechos Humanos, Ciudadanos y Autonomicos., our human rights org beneficiary, will be using our towers to educate locals on how to grow food vertically with limited land space and during #climatechange. Our next step is to teach locals to find and use recyclables to "invent" their own vertical gardens. Who's up for the challenge? Together, we can do good things! #permaculture #planting #gardening #growingfood
CEDEHCA presents a grant to Inter-American Foundation on behalf of the Finding Corte Magore project

Michael Campbell of #CEDEHCA (Centro de Derechos Humanos, Ciudadanos y Autonomicos.-) gives Tonia Allen Gould-Author and founder of the Finding Corte Magore project, some wonderful news! CEDEHCA will be presenting a grant to the Inter-American Foundation that involves our co-initiatives with CEDEHCA, as Michael details here in this video.

We are a #socialentrepreneurial #Ecotourism op that utilizes an island to create and serve unique #educational programs to the #impoverished people in the region where the island exists. We feel that land exists to serve its people, and our model deploys some of the highest sustainability standards in the world.
Since you asked. Thank you to our new "listeners" through Garden Tower Project: We're blown away by all your questions, comments and excitement about this project. Please know that our active followers have followed us from inception and have watched our organic growth - so we see your need for information. This was a dream from our first visit to #Nicaragua over 18 months ago- from wanting an island for social good, to forming a partnership with Ambassador Campbell on his island. In that time, we created a business plan, secured an island, visited the Nicaraguan Embassy in Washington DC, allied with CEDEHCA (Nica Human Rights org), have formed relationships with key advisors like UCSB's Bren School of Environmental Science, CREST, NOAA, California Lutheran University, Conservation International, URRACAN, and received fiscal sponsorship with a 501c to make your donations tax deductible. Finding Corte Magore incorporated as California B-Corp in August with a social and environmental mission that will be perfectly transparent. We have a secondary corporation forming in Nicaragua at Corte Magore at Hog Cay and will benefit from Nica tourism and taxation laws. We feel that land exists to serve its people, and our model (ecotourism + #education in poor, Latin American coastal communities) deploys some of the highest sustainability standards in the world. Out tourists will likely be K-Grey students and citizen scientists, educators, researchers and universities. I have personally selected #GardenTower as our first project from #CorteMagore at Hog Cay. #staytuned #likethispage #moretofollow -Tonia Allen Gould, Author, Thought Leader and Founder
A native, indigenous #fisherman and his children enjoy the lookout on our #island of Corte Magore at Hog Cay, #Nicaragua. Be sure to the follow the @findingcortemagore project to learn how our island will become a beacon of #hope, serving some 80,000 Latin Americans along the #Caribbean #Coast.
The Americas
While last on the island, Tonia Allen Gould-Author, was walking and talking with Earl Gregory Taylor, a colleague from the Centro de Derechos Humanos, Ciudadanos y Autonomicos. Tonia asked Earl, a native #Nicaraguan what he thought about Americans and you may be surprised by his answer. #oneworld #onetribe #latinamerica #theamericas #onepeople #travel #centralamerica #caribbean #bluefields
