A Final Thank You to Our Donors

January 20, 2019

Friends, family, and other cherished donors-


     As the second semester kicks into full gear we wanted to take a second to say thank you to everyone for all of the support, both moral and financial, that each and every one of y’all provided us with last semester. Having attained the financial backing we needed to make our project a reality, this semester we plan to focus on prototyping and getting ready to actually implement our project in Oaxaca, Mexico with the help of the Xuchil gang!


     If you would like to continue monitoring our project’s progress, feel free to follow our social media sites:






     If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions related to our project, you can reach us at


     Again, this project would not have been possible without everyone’s help, and we cannot thank y’all enough!


      Here’s to an awesome and productive new year,

Cookie Bake Sale!

November 21, 2018

Hello! We are happy to update y'all on our Cookie Bake Sale and recent fundraising achievements! Last week we baked over 300 Mesquite Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies and held a bake sale in front of ETC. The mesquite flour in our cookie batter was produced and milled from our community in Suchilquitongo, Mexico! Mesquite has a unique flavor that resembles an earthy and sweet blend that is further enhanced when combined with oats and chocolate chips. We hoped you enjoyed the cookies as much as we enjoyed baking and explaining our project! We were able to raise over $600 from our bake sale!! Thank you for your donations and support!! 


We are currently at 63% of our fundraising goal (almost $10,000!!!). None of this is possible with out you all. We are truly thankful for you, our donors and supporters, as we enter into this Thanksgiving Holiday! Continue to share with your friends and family about our project and goal. Stay updated on FacebookInstagram and our Website


Aside from fundraising, we have been finalizing our design and materials for our Polyhouse Solar Dryer! We are looking into current designs and altering them to fit our needs to enhance the drying process for our community. To learn more about our project updates visit our site


Thank you again for your help! Have a safe and Happy Thanksgiving!

The oldest mesquite tree is thought to be 400+ years old! It is called the Tree of Life because it is hundreds of miles from another natural tree.
