Patria Nueva

Nueva Patria

Jaime Ruíz Martínez and Alex White Mazzarella started the project, Patria Nueva, in the outskirts of Oaxaca. The project takes its name after the neighborhood on the outskirts of the city, colonia Patria Nueva, where Jaime and his neighbors have been organizing community-led educational projects that range from sewing lessons, in traditional regional embroidery techniques, to developing a community garden.
