Our first garden was a 1200mts plot of abandoned land at the back of the school where we work, now it has become a space full of life where pollinators, insects and micro organisms collaborate with us to produce organic vegetables and fruits that feed our children.
Our second garden follows the same roots, a bit smaller but also a plot used as a landfill that is now producing delicious organic veggies to supplement the lunch programs at the Huycho primary school.
Our gardens are an educational space, designed to share our introductory curriculum to organic gardening, we incorporate permaculture and bio-intensive farming techniques that complement traditional Andean farming methods.
Now we have more than 80 varieties of vegetables, tubers, aromatic herbs and flowers from which we save seeds and enjoy a balanced diet.
The gardens belongs to the children and is for the children, they use these spaces to learn, enjoy, take care of it and experience the ecosystems that we create together.
