Alyeriz Arauz - Reforestation in Corozo

Alyeriz Arauz – Reforestation in Corozo, Nicaragua

The “Reforestation in Corozo, Nicaragua Project” is an initiative created in tandem with ARTISTS FOR SOUP, an organization working creatively to support nutritional and environmental health in the Matagalpa region of Nicaragua. The project will create an opportunity for an existing group of women and young people on the Indigenous Reservation in Corozo to start a nutrition-producing nursery and design a sustainable community model for seedling care. Many local families struggle with water and food shortages. The project aims to develop a replicable model of reforestation that can be scaled and applied in other regions to support local families.
