Two projects in North America, bringing and keeping people home. Home to their region, home to their community, home with their families.
Ricardo Maldonado in Guanajuato, Mexico, a Hacienda Project currently involving three separate communities, their mission, products, and how families are coming back home to work thus revitalizing their country. Mexico, whose rich resources include conviction and faith in family and community. The owners and staff of Hacienda de Monjas, Hacienda de San Juan Pan de Arriba and Hacienda La Jaula, in the municipality of San Diego de la Unión in Guanajuato, welcome people to learn about the richness of the history of these large dwellings through an engaging version of Mexican colonial history as the people of the haciendas share their customs, their knowledge, and their food.
Hans Hansen, thinking about true sustainability, food sources and family has taken on a project to convert ranchland into a sustainable working farm for a family who decided to do more than have a backyard garden. Their endeavor in Grimes County, just north of Houston to build to learn about farming is bringing people in the area together to work and learn.
