La Colmena Cimarrona: Comedor Social de Vieques

El Comedor de Vieques is a project birthed at La Colmena Cimarrona, an organization that practices agroecology and beekeeping with the intention of flourishing food sovereignty in the archipelago of Puerto Rico. Currently La Colmena Cimarrona coordinates three projects: Finca Conciencia, El Panal and La Sambumbia, all with the aim of developing ecological agriculture in Vieques hand in hand with numerous grassroots community organizations. In response to the crisis generated by the storms, they developed El Panal with a group of women who gave them the task of organizing community health clinics, a weekly community kitchen, courses to train promoters in agroecology and health, energy sovereignty workshops, community radio, civic band, natural medicine, a garden and we support Health and Acupuncture for the People with acupuncture clinics.
