Growing a Garden
In an attempt to teach our older kids new skills, gardens are being created in both the boys' and girls' villages. A few months ago, agriculture employees helped to create a compost in the girls' village, which wasn't without some very enthusiastic helpers!
Now that the soil is ready, there is a plethora of fruits and vegetables being planted. The gardens will include quenepes, tomatoes, carrots, sweet peppers, spinach, eggplant, and cabbage. An elevated structure was built to hold the plants in order to protect them from our curious and energetic toddlers.
