Princess Marcela (center,above) at an eco-art exposition

Princess Marcela is one of the most outspoken and flamboyant of the Sembradores. She was the first leader when it started in the early 90s. She was looking for the plants used by the iridescent Morpho butterflies to lay their eggs on, and after many days searching, found the tree. She prepared a place to raise the caterpillars, but just before returning to collect the leaves, the forest was burnt and all the eggs destroyed.. She went to the Japanese embassy in LaPaz to try to get funds for an education program, but they told her they gave money only to governments. Other embassies were even less responsive. She's been inactive since then, until now, when she's been asked to write more, because she kicks ass.

Everywhere they go, Earthgardens kids practice art.

Here in the 3rd world, all the worldwide radio services have exactly the same news, in exactly the same order. And it's news which is selected to uphold a certain limited view of reality and the corporate mandate. TV is the same, it comes from USA, and the protagonists are always cops. "Other" people, like you and your neighbors, are depicted as untrustworthy and suspicious, especially if they have different ideas.

That's fine, we enjoy those shows, and we certainly enjoy the products the corporations provide. but could...

maybe? just once?,

a protagonist be...

a person with a different vision of the world, or an appreciation of biodiversity?

Is there any neurological activity in the developed world which doesn't come from the artificially-enforced shot-callers? If there is, it's not visible in South America.

And that's leading to another form of starvation, as bad as malnutrition.

Starvation of the

COLLECTIVE IMAGINATION.

THE NEW ECO TEAMS, CENTRAL AMERICA, 2009-2018

The Eco Teams in Central America. Volunteers can enjoy sunny weather, the relaxed company of kids, and being outdoors. You will be appreciated for what you bring the kids. We need treehouses, ultralights, good examples of earthfit living, and your love.


Most visitors are surprised to learn that you can buy a horse in Nicaragua for under $25. A common nuissance here is vampires. (Note 2 scars on neck of mare at left)


. Empty minds, healthy minds, redy to become earthfit



your worst nightmare.... children doing fun, and DANGEROUS things.

Danger sharpens attention. Just to stay alive you have to join the fast track and handle it elegantly. Kids instinctively love, and need that challenge.


Nature offers real playgrounds. "Schools" are ...... ...at best .. .... counterfeits.
