I'm so proud of the work of this year's interns, they are a cohort of powerful women leaders! If you have time, it would be great to have your support as we close the Fall 2019/Spring 2020 Leadership Institute and wish the interns great success as they continue their journeys.

Maintaining hope during challenging times

April 29, 2020

Dearest Community,


Amidst the challenging times that we are facing across our communities, it is vital that we maintain positivity and hope during these challenging times.


The spring season is such an important time for many of our community members who remain connected to land, water, and agricultural traditions. As these days pass, we remain thankful for the water that flows throughout our community acequias, of the earth that is being prepared for growing, and for the bursts of life we continue to witness all around us - from bright green leaves to colorful flowers.


As a way to maintain our hope and to remind us of the importance of land and water, we invite the community to send us pictures/short videos of their local acequias, of lands being prepped for the season, of greenhouses, of seedlings, and of themselves. We also ask you to include a short description of pictures sent that includes a message of hope for our community. 


Send your pictures along with descriptions and messages to info@cesoss.org. We will share these pictures/videos on our website and on the CESOSS Facebook page.
