On Friday, April 22, 2022, Sowing Opportunities held an Earth Day event in front of The Gallery@57 from 12:00 to 6:00 p.m. The event included discussing our mission and work in the remote indigenous village of Chajmaic, Guatemala, offering plants in exchange for donations, a bake sale, the sale of Guatemalan handicrafts and rock painting. 100% of the proceeds from sales and donations are going towards the greenhouse project in Chajmaic.
The day was very successful with many people stopping by the table to learn about the work or make a purchase or donation. Children and adults alike really enjoyed painting rocks, led by local artist, Ginny Remedi-Brown.
