VIDA Project Documentary

A VIDA activist is someone who is committed to staying involved with the campaign.  As an activist, you will receive email updates on our progress on the ground, upcoming VIDA events, and activism resources.  If an activist event is taking place in your city, we may call on you to volunteer or help us promote it.

We've identified 2,500 people as a critical mass needed to re-introduce the methods of high-yield organic farming into Mexico's Totonac region.  The cost of this capacity building is $10 per person.  To create momentum for up-scaling the project, we need a strong, grassroots network of at least 500 VIDA activists.
