As part of our Food Security and Sustainability outreach, Guåhan Sustainable Culture and the Summer Town Estates organized a growers workshop for twenty four (24) residents at the Summer Town Estates for Seniors on Wednesday, August 28, 2019.

Thank you to our wonderful volunteers
Since the start of our journey this year, our members have worked so hard to find us a home. We are humbled and excited to start inviting the community to our new Guma at the Sagan Kotturan Chamoru Guam Cultural Center in Tomhom, where we’ll continue to work on our mission for food independence as we build our first educational facility and community garden. Our volunteers from USS Frank Cable and USS Emory S. Land were amazing today. We are also excited to learn from farmer Pågat.
A team of experts from Northern Marianas College flew in for a last minute workshop at the Dededo Farmer’s Co-op.
