“Planting For The Future”
WHO WE ARE
We are a small group of volunteers that help empower youth who want to grow their own food in urban or rural areas. We design fun projects and simple low cost food production systems that our youth can use to grow food for their families and communities. With the help of volunteers,teachers,farmers and people just like you we can inspire and support the next generations of urban farmers.
Indigo Azul (“Blue Indigo”)
The Indigo Azul Project is a demonstration Food Forest and learning center for youth currently being constructed in Jalisco MX. We have 1.5 acres of tropical growing space and room to accommodate small groups of local students and volunteers. Our focus here is to teach youth about simple technologies and sustainable methods to grow nutritious foods for themselves,their families and their community. Once completed we will host 100% free programs that focus on youth development skills ,food production,environmental awareness and soil restoration. All of our efforts are in alignment with at least 1 or more of the United Nations 17 sustainable goals.
Indigo Azul Project Mission
This project is dedicated to the 15-30 children in the Paso De Guayabo neighborhood of Puerto Vallarta, MX.

With your help and support we can make this the blueprint for future projects and a working model for ongoing research and education on food security.
