The Greenhouse Project Approaches its Finale

During the last few months Fundación Tropicalia has been hard at work with its partners USAID and REDDOM on an agricultural diversification project that aims to promote food security and sustainable cultivation practices in Miches. We are proud to announce that the project is drawing to an end after six successful months that consisted of hosting a nutrition summer camp for children, several workshops in business administration and balanced diet for locals in the area, and the construction of a greenhouse in La Gina community.

The project’s latest achievements were seen from inside the greenhouse as the Agricultural Association Juan Pablo Duarte concluded the construction of 20 “canteros”, beds of soil and organic fertilizer, in preparation for planting seedlings of red bell peppers.  Members of the association are eager to begin this new adventure.
