Nutrition and School Vegetable Gardens

Since 2015 we have taken the initiative to participate regularly in the school programs of four local public schools through the development of activities that cover aspects of health, wellness, nutrition, bio-intensive ecological agriculture, permaculture and art. The schools are: San Isidro Labrador de Sillacancha school, 50153 Arin School, Mitmac Primary School, and Huycho School.

Parents and management have been really important in the development of these projects, which have allowed us to establish a relationship of trust with clear, honest and open communication

Both parents and children help us to enrich the experience we have in developing these activities allowing us to offer holistic and comprehensive information in a responsible, respectful and loving way, where we all find ourselves through the spirit of teamwork and mutual collaboration.

Our support for San Isidro Labrador includes:

  • Providing Lunch for the students.
  • Paying the wage of an extra teacher for students who need extra academic support.
  • Organic garden project and education for all classes.

Our future goal is the creation and expansion of an organic vegetable farm which will be used to:

  • Be an education center for the students and locals,
  • Supplement the students diet.
  • Provide income to the school through the sale of vegetables and flowers
  • Provide training and employment opportunities to former students.

In 2016, we started to develop activities of ecologic agriculture using bio intensive and organic methods mixed with the spirit of permaculture this. In this activity, we have the participation of all students and teachers twice a week.

The development of this activity aims to provide clear and precise information on how to obtain great benefits and results through these agricultural practices to children and teachers who mostly live in rural areas and in turn enrich the inputs of the restaurant kitchen from.

All production is for the internal consumption of the school thereby benefiting school officials as well as their students.
