The past months, we've been working in our greenhouse to provide education but also food. In these days, our country is facing inflation. For this reason, families are struggling to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Also, a huge problem is affecting the center of the country, because of climate change: drought. This is affecting the prices of fruits and vegetables, but also home patches. For this reason, we're struggling to give more greenhouse to different communities around our region, using this platform, but also resources from our government. Also, we're using our sources to give knowledge to the people, about proper ways to use water, recycling, community work, and others.
We want to thanks to our donors for supporting this project. We're going to keep our efforts to give our communities a healthy and sustainable lifestyle.
In the last three months, our team have been working really hard to make this dream come true.
In October, we started the construction of a greenhouse of 48 m2. This was made with wood and polycarbonate. The result is a huge greenhouse, with enough space for plant and for the community, to give knowledge around the appropriate maintaining of a garden, organic waste recycling and the importance of urban gardens in our environment.
After the construction, we planted a lot of species: lettuce, melons, tomatoes, basil, corn, broccoli and others. In December, we were able to harvest the first vegetables. All this food was shared with the community, all organic and high quality.
We've learned a lot about the maintenance of a greenhouse, and to show the community, we are organizing workshops for adults, and kids. Our purpose is promoting urban gardens, responsibility and environmental care.
In the last months we have been preparing all the details for the construction of a new greenhouse. This will be located in Concón, Chile on a land that’s going to be a playground for vulnerable kids. We’re going to start it the next month, on August. In this opportunity, the greenhouse will be for some kids and their families. For that reason, we needed to adapt the design.
For this project, we got the support of the Chilean government, to promote the importance of environment for the kids and their families. At the same time, the space will promote group activities and the access to healthy food.
We cant wait to show you some pictures of the results!
