In a parking lot, in a land far, far away in a town named Riberas Del Pilar...The Vivero La Esperanza from San Juan Tecomatlan had its first vivero plant sale on Saturday Sept. 21st, 2019 from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. in front of Laura's Garden Center....and it was a grand success!
With a little (a lot) help from my friends soon tents, tables, umbrellas, plants started to arrive.
Our information and sales tables were set. Presente were the beautiful jewelry products from the Jewelry making women's group of San Pedro Itzican. Also for sale were the wonderfully made hand knitted products from the Knitting group of women of San Pedro Itzican.
As expected customers arrived early...but we were ready to serve.
Our green friend Kalina gifted the sale with love nurtured, vibrant plants from her home garden.
All throughout the day sales were brisk at the sales table. The repurposed fabric, reusable bags from the Sewing group of San Pedro Itzican were available.
Just before high noon, the Traditional Dance Troupe from San Pedro Itzican arrived.
The dancers carefully prepared for their presentation

Beautiful strawberry plants went quickly
After the opening ritual the Sword Dance was performed.
This dance represented the struggle of the indigenous people throughout the
Spanish invasion in Mexico.
In Gratitude, we'd like to thank
all of our constant volunteers,
Anita Torres Guerrero and the Brigadistas of San Pedro Itzican,
Laura from the Garden Center in Riberas Del Pilar
all the friends who donated part of their souls through plants,
the Poco A Poco committee,
the children of Vivero La Esperanza for all their hard work,
the people of San Juan Tecomatlan de los Chiles Verdes for hosting our efforts in their town,
and all the delightful people who came out to see, experience, support our efforts.
Without you, we could not have made this lovely day possible.
Un millón de Gracias.
