Organic Gardening during a Pandemic

Student volunteers

It has been challenging running an organic garden during  a pandemic. We are very fortunate that our garden manager, Francisco, lives in the village and is not restricted by lockdown restrictions. We have been able to keep the garden functioning due to all our student volunteers who enjoy receiving produce for their labour.

Before the latest lockdown the Ministry Of Agriculture (MAGA) came to view our garden and to give advice on increasing yield and fighting diseases organically. We were able to show them how we make organic bochashi using items collected in the village.

The garden is located in the elementary school yard and the principal has been taking the excess produce to sell to purchase supplies for the elementary school. When everything returns to normal we will start our instructional courses again.
