Introducing Our Gardener, Bernardino Enriquez
Sun, soil, and water! We provide the seeds and the talent,Bernardino Enriquez. Educated in the gardens of his mother and grandmother in the Mexican interior, Bernadino farms a huge Wings ofAngels vegetable garden in the heart of the Ladrillero barrio. At every seasonal harvest, he distributes to the very poor and to the very old.
Bernardino is a teacher. From him, little Hector Bravo learns howto farm his little raised table outside his family’s kitchen door.With this education, Hector will always be able to feed his family.
Seed donations come from celebrated seed growers who support our work, Renee Shepherd Seeds and Seeds of Change. Teaching the poor to grow their own food is fundamental to a basic quality of life.
