GETTING things Made.

out of bamboo and from a local wood called concaste. Louis makes a handle for the hammer. Every tool is valuable here everyone fixes everything. My kind of place.

Beth Ireland and Jenn Moller brought Turning Around America to a project already underway by Mathew Creelman, a Bostonian who moved to Guatemala 30 years ago. Matt invited us to stay with the community in the village. Matt and his daughter, Pilar along with Tyson are creating sustainable community projects without the help of major funding organizations, which Matt thinks can corrupt the process of true village independence, so Turning Around America philosophically was a good fit for his project in San Juan Bautista, Veracruz.
