MESSAGE FROM CAPICU:
Mi gente! This June, due to the ongoing crisis in PR we wished to do more… instead of our Open Mic, we have decided to focus our energy on helping to rebuild Puerto Rico by partnering with Nuestro Ideal- an organization focused on long term organic sustainability projects to impact food security for the most vulnerable.
The event will contain a Q & A segment with George ‘Urban Jibaro’ Torres and Luis Nicho from Nuestro Ideal to speak about their proposed long term sustainable food projects that include;
– A 2 acre partnership with the Botijas school in Orocovis.
– Capacity development for local organizations.
– A proposed 15 acre long term project in development.”
Spinning on the wheels bringing us an official tissue feel of a Brooklyn block party is super-producer, DJ Cocotaso!”
