Watercolor painting in El Cardonal

In January 2014, Lynn Meadows and Juanita Joy lead a watercolor painting class at the primary school in el Cardonal. We taught the children to have a conversation with the primary colors and introduced them to water color pencils. This is an ongoing project with Hearthstone and Tu Hogar. We plan to teach the teachers and raise support for the supplies. This will enable the program to be integrated into the school so that all of the children will experience the beauty of the colors and the nurturing arts.

Tu Hogar Work Party

October 29, 2011: El Cardonal, BCS, Mexico.

Gran Inaguracion de la Casa Communitaria y Clinica, Tu Hogar en El Cardonal.

We realized our 7 year vision for a clinic, emergency shelter, and community building in our small Mexican Village on the Sea of Cortez. The whole community pulled together and we finished the clinic in one week. We had a team of more than 12 volunteers from Ukiah Valley Medical Center, painting, and helping create the parking lot. The Grand Opening Fiesta was a great party, with tons of local culinary delights including fresh fish! Three days later the government doctor came and saw more than 40 patients in one day. The building is so beautiful, it is beyond my wildest dreams. I cried.
