5,000 Trees... We are expanding the Healing Gardens initiative to include one of the most precious life-giving forces on Earth: Trees. We want to create forests that feed people and provide vital ecosystems for plants, animals and bees - these incredible forests are known as Food Forests. Food Forests support the health and well being of vulnerable communities while also contributing to reforestation/the health of the planet and climate change mitigation. These edible forests consist of thousands of fruit, nut and spice trees along with vegetables, medicinal herbs and berries that provide families with sustainable food sources, crops to sell and on average, a 400% increase in their annual income in four years. These are long-term projects that ultimately create sustainable food systems that require minimal upkeep (the model mimics that of a wild forest), which is incredibly beneficial to poor communities that typically labor over their farms for many hours.
We are launching this campaign in honor of Earth Day. The cost to plant one tree is just $8. You can also join our monthly giving program or consider investing in an entire food forest for $5,000 - $10,000 (depending on size of land). Today you can be a part of this incredible initiative by helping to plant thousands of trees that will provide life-giving food, air and clean water for hundreds of years to come (click on the link in our profile to donate). 📸 @lifedezigned .

This week marks the 25th year of Remembrance of the Rwandan genocide which claimed the lives of over 1 million people. After the genocide, 70% of the population were female. It was women who rebuilt their country and continue to carry that same strength and resilience as their nation heals from immense tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Rwanda during this difficult time. 📸 @lifedezigned .

In Africa and in many other parts of the world, women are the stewards of the land. They are also more likely than men to be open and nurturing by embracing practices like regenerative agriculture which feeds the soil and brings new life and nutrients to the food we eat. Our goal is to help heal Humanity by first ensuring that everyone has enough healthy, nutritious food to eat. We are also looking for sponsors to help us plant thousands of trees, which nourish the soil, provide food and protect and heal the planet from excessive carbon emissions. Join us today by donating $24 (plants 3 threes). Click on the link to sponsors trees today 🙏❤️ 📸 @lifedezigned

Healing. So much of the world is in need of this. So where do we start? Where can we place our proverbial hands to send waves of love, comfort, compassion and hope? The most simple basic act is to feed a neighbor. To offer nourishing food or to teach one to grow her own food, so that the body hence the mind and soul can produce energy, cleanse itself and regenerate new life-giving cells. Food is life. Food brings peace and ends suffering. We are working with the most basic level of need - food security- so that we can empower people to move beyond survival to a place of opportunity.

Did you know that one of the greatest challenges all humans face over the next 50 years is food security? We are working to implement solutions NOW that will provide resilient forms of food security to the communities we partner with. These solutions include planting lots of food trees, which create beautiful hardy ecosystems that will withstand the wear and tear climate change is throwing at us. Throughout the many years we’ve been doing work in Rwanda we quickly learned that if people don’t have enough to eat everything else in their lives fall apart. Just $8 covers the cost to plant one tree (click on the link in our bio to donate 🙏). Join us today in planting thousands of trees that provide food security and economic opportunities to families living in poverty. 📸 @lifedezigned .

Over the years of partnering with women farmers we have learned that healthy soil means health and prosperity for the people. Soil rich in nutrients supplies minerals, vitamins and loads of antioxidants to plants. As the women prepare the Healing Gardens they will use organic compost and mulch to enrich the soil with so much healing goodness. They are not only creating health for themselves but also for Mother Earth. This cycle of ‘feeding’ the soil will continue to nourish generations to come. ♥️ 📸 @lifedezigned .

Happy International Women’s Day! Today is a day to celebrate all the incredible strides women have made throughout history. It is also a day to reflect on all that still needs to be done to ensure the health, safety, access to education and economic opportunities for women around the world.

In the communities we partner with, we are still working to ensure that women and their families have access to clean water. We are also working to create sustainable solutions that provide women with nutritious food ( for both maternal and gereral health), safe working environments and education in health/wellness, human rights, business skills and financial planning.

Our vision is to create beauty in the midst of poverty, by planting food forests that feed women and their families while also creating economic opportunities and access to renewable resources (at no to minimal costs). We believe this is the way forward in truly breaking the chains of poverty for women around the globe. With your help, we will see this vision through and ensure that women will rise above these struggles and lead the world forward through compassionate leadership and socially conscious solutions. 📸 @lifedezigned .

We have been doing lots of research on the benefits of food forests and how we can integrate them into our projects. We want to plant lots of trees to feed people... it’s an idyllic vision... one that we hope to realize soon ♥️ 📸 @lifedezigned .

A big focus for us this year has been health. Our team has been brainstorming ways to bring clean water and nutritious food to the communities we partner with. We know the key to economic development is health and education - two things we’ve been heavily investing in. The coolest part is that we can use innovative solutions that also benefit the planet, which is a win-win for all! You can become part of these amazing solutions by joining our monthly giving program.

We’ve had some big wins this year...nothing short of miracles that are making way for a bigger, grander vision. It’s been a long time coming and a whole lot of learning, but we are on the path to greatness. I’ve spent some time working on a United Nations NGO Committee learning about the Agenda 2030. The plan of action for Agenda 2030 is “People, Planet and Prosperity.” Our team knows that the root of all the world’s critical issues stems from poverty. We also know that our planet is suffering immensely and that we must look for innovative solutions to poverty that allows people to live sustainably. So we are making shifts to incorporate things like composting, rainwater collection, solar energy, food forests, conservation education and permaculture design. We hope to integrate this in schools and embed it in our Healing Gardens projects. This is our future and in our opinion it’s the only way forward. We are always looking to expand our partnerships, so if you share the same vision, reach out, say hi and let’s make a plan of action for people, the planet and prosperity. ~Maria ♥️ 📸 @lifedezigned

This past month children at the Aspire Preschool learned songs and greetings in Kinyarwanda, English AND French, practiced colors, counting and the letters of the alphabet. They also engaged in storytelling, arts and crafts and analyzing riddles. The children played outdoors and are learning how to develop friendships. Of course the first month wouldn’t be complete without a proper hand washing lesson to ensure that these amazing little beings stay healthy and well!! It was a GREAT month!!
