Charity Seeds and Partners
Charity Seeds is a non profit organization that works to provide organic gardens to people in need. In particular, Charity Seeds believes that working with local partners makes sense in many ways. The Hogares Claret Foundation, a Colombia based non-profit, seeks to integrate individuals back into society who have experienced varying forms of trauma, including but not limited to the effects of the recent civil war. There are currently over thirty orphanages in the foundation and to achieve their goals, the Hogares Claret Foundation utilizes a number of therapeutic measures, such as meditation, equestrian interaction, education and now wants Charity Seeds’ healing gardens to fill a major role in their program. The gardens not only bring fresh organic food to the children at the orphanages, it provides another option for the children to work with the earth and plants and empower them for the future. Yet, according to the director of the foundation, Father Gabriel Meier, it is love that is the absolute guiding philosophy of the organization. Father Gabriel has been the guiding light for these children and now Charity Seeds wants to contribute to this wonderful foundation. Colombia is turning to a new page and is rewriting its future for the children to flourish.
