In Latin American countries, one in every three people live in poverty. A portion of every purchase at La Cosecha, year-round, supports the work of EDENS’ La Cosecha Foundation, a nonprofit with a mission to support social, cultural and economic prosperity. The Foundation’s primary beneficiary is TECHO, a youth-led nonprofit actively working in more than 550 informal settlements across 18 Latin American and Caribbean countries to create a just society without poverty. TECHO has transformed thousands of families’ lives and has seen firsthand that every donation can change a story.

“Cusqueñita” | New Mural by Roberto Seminario | La Cosecha

The city of Cuzco is embodied by this girl in traditional clothes, worn with pride for her roots. A metallic circle represents the gold of Incan ancestors and beyond, set against a background inspired by the Mountain of Seven Colors. A generous gift from the Embassy of Peru, Cusqueñita is the culmination of a live painting event during celebrations of the 201st anniversary of Peruvian independence. Roberto Seminario, aka “Sef,” grew up in Peru’s historic Pueblo-Libre district where he started as a graffiti artist.
