During the upcoming weekends, the PEACE team will join forces with the incredible nonprofit organization, Entreamigos, hundreds of volunteers and the local community, to build four children's parks/playgrounds made almost entirely out of recycled materials at four different schools in the Punta Mita area.
Come and help us build recycled parks! We will build the first park on Saturday, April 24th, from 9 am to 6 pm, at the Corral del Risco Primary School.
If you can't make it on April 24th, come and join us on May 8th, anytime from 9 am and 6 pm, when we will be building THREE Recycled parks in ONE day at three different schools in Emiliano Zapata.
