Day 129: Get your hands green

Here are some images from our Summer School organic gardening project on fridays. We had great fortune involving two engineers from the Department of Agriculture. They helped us construct a nursery and plant 800 native capulí (a small berry similar to a cherry) seeds. Of course, it was the amazing effort of over one hundred kids that makes it possible. Their enthusiasm and participation has been excellent. The garden is currently planted with lettuce and radish. Due to daily rains, we haven´t even needed to water!
