Spring Brings Lots of Activities to Entreamigos San Pancho

San Pancho, Nayarit, Mexico – Entreamigos began in 2006 on a kitchen table in the middle of a San Pancho street. Today, housed in a giant warehouse recognized as a model sustainable facility, it is an active community center with classes and workshops, a scholarship program, a bilingual library for children and adults, a computer center, an extensive recycling program, a gift store and the Recicla thrift shop. Here’s the latest news from Entreamigos:

Environmental Fair Fun!

We were thrilled to host over 650 children, adults and families at our 6th Annual Environmental Fair. During the first part of the week we had classes such as upcycle your clothes, make you own home appliance with recycled materials, nature walk, medicinal plants and so much more! Then, on Friday we had the fair with 19 different stands from local organizations that provided our community with innovative ways to care for our environment, knowledge about local species and fun upcycled crafts and activities.

A HUGE thank you to everyone who made the week focused on environment possible! Your time and dedication allows this important environmental education to continue in our community.

Special thanks go to…

Our workshop teachers: Felipe, Laura, Marea, Mercelo, Mitchel, Nicole Marie, Steve, Mariano and the La Rustina staff

Our photographer: Rodrigo Duarte

Our delicious food provider: Burrito Piñata

All of the volunteers and staff that made everything magical throughout the week and on the day of the fair

And of course all the incredible organizations that joined us for the fair: Imperial Bee • GRIMMA • Grupo Ecologico de la Costa Verde • Alianza Jaguar • Observatario de Aves San Pancho • Eco Diseño • Departamento de Educación Ambiental de Bahia de Banderas • Uumbali • La Patrona Polo Club • La Rustina • CEMBAB • Equipo Educativo EA • Instituto Tecnológico de Bahía de Banderas • Bee Green • Chido Kids

Spotlight on Liz

We want to take a moment to recognize Liz, who picks up everyone’s recycling daily and takes it to Entreamigos where she separates it into plastic, cardboard, glass by color, and metal. We are so fortunate to have such a dedicated and hard-working person to meet our town’s recycling needs and keep all of this waste out of the landfill. If you see Liz driving around, be sure to tell her what a fabulous job she is doing!

Spring Break Schedule Change

We wanted to let you all know that for the Easter Break weeks (April 11th – April 22nd), Entreamigos will have reduced hours 11am – 3pm. We will continue to have classes and all our services during our open hours those weeks. Thank you all for your support!
