On March 18, the training cycle began thanks to the financing granted by the Regional Government of Valparaíso (FNDR 6%). The project consisted of carrying out 6 workshops on cultivation techniques, orchard management and organic waste management.
This cycle exceeded expectations, since we have managed to consolidate a group of participants, always willing to learn and contribute to generate even more collaborative knowledge. We thank the participants, and Professor Carlos Reyes.


TRAINING IN TRADES FOR YOUNG PEOPLE FROM CONCÓN
Between June and July, the project was developed on our land located in Concón. This consisted of three cycles of training, where 60 young people from the region were able to learn about earthen construction, carpentry and plumbing. Almost all of the training was carried out in a practical way, by carrying out a real work. In each cycle we were able to appreciate how each young person managed to acquire knowledge in the matter, experience and commitment with the rest of the team, characteristic of a job in Minga. We thank all the young people who participated, and those who contributed to make this project possible.
NEW CYCLE OF GARDEN WORKSHOPS IN SEPTEMBER
In September we will begin to carry out a new cycle of Workshops on urban gardens and agroecology techniques, open to the community. We will meet again in our greenhouse located in the Concón Community Center, to provide the community with practical knowledge and tools on orchards and cultivation, in order to encourage their own and community projects of an environmental nature. This project will be carried out thanks to the Fund for Strengthening Public Interest Organizations.
