Fondacio in Chile COH : Medicinal plants at home

Fondacio in Chile : COH has continued to work remotely since the beginning of the quarantine, offering its workshops to groups of people with disabilities or at social risk.

To strengthen this work, at the beginning of August it physically sent two of its work groups the necessary material for the COH program of activities for the second semester.

Each participant received in their home, via mail, a medicinal plant processing kit that will allow them to learn and practice the propagation, harvesting, defoliation, drying, packaging and finally labeling of these plants.

The work will allow not only to develop the autonomy of the participants in the production of medicinal plants for their personal consumption, but also to give or sell them.

Thanks to the delivery of the necessary knowledge of Monica Espinoza, responsible for the program and in charge of the workshops, these families will have the opportunity to start a new enterprise and to better cope with this crisis.

These COH workshops are also a space for listening and support, where community is generated through love of nature.

Supporting isolated people is always a priority for Fondacio's mission, particularly in these times of crisis, when they need it most.
