Shared Equipment / Equipamiento compartido

Small farmers lack equipment for occasional big jobs! Commercial equipment rentals are often cost prohibitive for small farmers, even then the right tools and equipment are often unavailable at any cost!

Levantando is obtaining these highly sought-after tools and equipment for our small organic farmers in Puerto Rico to use in exchange for in kind donations to other farmers or small donations to cover the maintenance of the equipment.  

Please give generously to support small farmers in Puerto Rico! focuses on providing support to small, local organic farmers.

Your donations fund the equipment purchase for these shared tools for small farmers, allowing them to plant, grow, and harvest organic crops more efficiently.

Los pequeños agricultores carecen de equipos para los grandes trabajos ocasionales. El alquiler de equipos comerciales es a menudo prohibitivo para los pequeños agricultores, e incluso entonces las herramientas y equipos adecuados a menudo no están disponibles a cualquier precio.

Levantando está obteniendo estas herramientas y equipos altamente codiciados para nuestros pequeños agricultores orgánicos en Puerto Rico para su uso a cambio de donaciones en especie a otros agricultores o pequeñas donaciones para cubrir el mantenimiento de los equipos.

Por favor, ¡dona generosamente para apoyar a los pequeños agricultores de Puerto Rico! se centra en proporcionar apoyo a los pequeños agricultores orgánicos locales.

¡Sus donaciones financian la compra de equipos para estas herramientas compartidas para los pequeños agricultores, lo que les permite plantar, cultivar y cosechar cultivos orgánicos de manera más eficiente!
