A day here at the lake ...

Marcos, an Indigenous Maya Fisherman speaking about his fishing lineage, changes he's witnessed in the lake conditions, and his hopes for the future.

Last week while walking to the lake I found Marcos and his family member building fishing nets in the garden.he was kind enough to share some stories, explaining how his father taught him to fish and that he passed the tradition on to his son. He goes on to say that there were more fish in the past when lots of Tul was growing in the lake. After a hurricane took out most of the tul, he said there weren't any fish for 5 years so he began crabbing instead. Marcos said it would be better for the lake if more Tul was growing. He thinks it's great that people are replanting Tul and hopes it continues for the health of the lake and to give habitats for the fish.

Seeds & Sounds Fest - Uniting Artists, Muscians, Gardeners & Community Organizations
At Seeds & Sounds Fest, The Dallas-Fort Worth community came together to show that we can be the change we wish to see in this world. Through education, action and service, we can create lasting, positive change for our communities. There is no greater feeling than being a part of something greater than ourselves. BIG THANKS to everyone involved. It took a team to pull this off and we are excited to organize similar events in 2018! **Which We Are Already Working On ;)
On October 21, 2017, SacredHeart Water teamed up with The Permaculture Action Network and Promise of Peace Gardens to host Dallas' first Permaculture Action Day. Residents of Dallas and surrounding areas, came together to successfully improve and expand a Promise of Peace community garden in the neighborhood of Old East Dallas. This was the first event of its kind in this location, and many volunteers did not know what to expect, but within a few hours everyone could see the positive impact being made. By the end of the day the picture was much clearer and it was visible that citizens of the DFW community had come together to transform a space while leaving something behind that would continue to serve the community.
The food grown in the space provides healthy food options which feed 60 families per week at the Emanuel Church next door to the garden. Promise of Peace founder Elizabeth Dry and her team of volunteers will continue to care for the garden and offer community events and benefits at the space.
Cass Maenius and Wes Brown (SniperShot) of SacredHeart Water had been envisioning this type of event for a few years when they came across the Pushing Through The Pavement documentary. Watching the film was confirmation that this dream was possible and they became inspired and excited to create an action day. They reached out to Ryan Rising and the details for Seeds & Sounds Fest took shape.
Volunteers at Seeds & Sounds Fest brought in dirt, mulched, planted raised beds, fruit trees, and painted signs and rainwater collection tanks. Kids and adults enjoyed a worm casting workshop led by Elizabeth Dry and John Bushe of Zero Waste Advocacy iot gave an inspiring Zero Waste workshop. Karla Ceballos and Bianca Apolonia Alonso of Clean Up Dallas spoke about their organization and even provided some art to the garden as well. Graffiti artist Eder Tron created Seeds & Sounds Fest-inspired live art throughout the day which now hang in the garden. Chef Travis Stinson prepared a delicious vegetarian chili with ingredients donated by Tom Thumb, Natural Grocers and a local farmers market, topped with fresh organic cilantro grown in the garden. HOLY Kombucha provided a variety of refreshing probiotic Kombucha beverages. SacredHeart Water brought a gravity fed water filter to provide clean drinking water for everyone and EcoDallas - Earth Friendly Tableware donated compostable cups, bowls, and spoons. We also raffled off a cool coffee gift basket from White Rock Coffee!
Some of Dallas' best underground musicians filled the air with grooves to bless the space and share good vibes with all of the volunteers. Link up with them:

General information

We are pleased to say that as of April 2016, SacredHeart Water is an official 501c3 non-profit organization that is dedicated to providing clean and free water to people in need. Issue: There is a problem when it is a revolutionary idea that it is a right for everyone in the world to have access to clean and potable water. Often even water believed pure, upon testing, is not. This is a global issue. We have chosen the location of San Pablo La Laguna, at Lake Atitlan, Guatemala as our initial area of focus. Water borne and parasitic illnesses are prevalent among people in this location, leading to malnutrition. Even worse, the lake has been having increasing Cyano Bacteria outbreaks, and exposure can cause liver failure. The main citizens in the area are Indigenous Maya, an under-served population. If they have running water it comes from the lake or down the mountain (neither clean) or they collect it directly from the lake. We collected water samples showing the contamination. Raw sewage and fertilizers are channeled into Lake Atitlan. The people are not educated about these dangers or the importance of hygiene. Solutions: Lake Atitlan, Guatemala is the site of our first project, and after demonstrating success we will expand to other areas. The success of this project depends on the successful implementation of various solutions working together. We need community water access stations with wells, showers, sanitizing sinks (for water vessels) and educational hygiene courses for community members so water is not re-contaminated. We will donate filters such as drinking straws and gravity-driven bucket and bag filters. We also want to work with companies doing large scale eco projects, such as Clean-Flo, to clean and promote the health of the lake. This project will bridge cultures and foster community as the need for water is something we all share. One of our favorite parts of this project is that it unifies people of all walks of life to celebrate and honor life through giving, receiving, sharing, and cleaning water. We will need volunteers, teams to install wells, build clean water stations, teach hygiene courses, staff to document our progress on paper and film, marketing, fundraising, and means to transport well drilling rigs and filters internationally. These projects require capital and we are seeking charitable donations to help us create a positive impact on our planet.
