Elvira Villalobos, Feeding Peace with Organic Local Vegetables

Elvira Villalobos is the recent recipient of a flow fund for her project, Feeding Peace with Organic Local Vegetables, in Sesquilé, Colombia. As the co-founder of one of the oldest women’s cooperatives in the country, Elvira will start an organic garden and vegetable shop that will empower women to bring back the deeply rooted farming traditions. The project will not only serve as a place for participants to produce vegetables but also a place for economic opportunities, community strengthening and networking.
