According to the United States Farm Bureau, only 1 in 50 American citizens have any farming experience (2%). That is why Chihuahuan Desert Charities LOVE to show off our students! Here you see students presenting their regenerative agriculture projects. They designed and gave a public presentation to demonstrate their newly acquired knowledge during the Community Farm Showcase Day.
DYGUP & SUSTAIN
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that adults have at least two hours and thirty minutes of moderate intensity aerobic activity (e.g. brisk walking) every week and muscle strengthening activities on two or more days a week. Children need more physical activity than adults. But achieving these recommendations takes a combination of strategies, including a supportive built and natural environment, opportunity for acceptable activity, and more.
As we discuss the future of our food supply, we must look to educating our youth about regenerative organic agriculture. That is why we are launching our campaign, “Love the People, Feed the People!” We will receive donations for the purposes of The DYGUP & SUSTAIN Program. Proceeds will be used to invest in farming equipment, more crop seeds, improving curriculum, and to cover labor costs to allow for more supervised time with students.
