Grant Recipient: Restoring Our Watershed

Restoring Our Watershed (ROW) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to protect and revitalize the Nandamojo Watershed, a 30,000-acre river basin on the western coast of Costa Rica’s Guanacaste province. The two primary objectives of ROW’s programs are ecosystem revitalization, and strengthening the local food system.

Targeted reforestation and erosion control are efforts that work to enhance the watershed’s natural ecosystem, which in turn, leads to viable farmland and the opportunity for sustainable living.
