Planting the Seed

The average mesquite pod has 25 seeds which are extracted and cooked, milled for its flour, and even used to make beer!


Fourty-fying an Economy

There are 40+ species of mesquite tree. Our project will help Suchilquitongo utilize species in their region that haven't been harvested before.


Tree of Life

There are 7 different species of mesquite trees native to Texas and northern Mexico!


Healthy Progress

Mesquite is packed with nutrients! Ground pods are between 11-17% protein!


Supporting the Community

The population of Oaxaca is approximately 300,000 people.
