Potatoes and Cilantro (May 31, 2022)

As part of the relationships that Sowing Opportunities has developed with our agricultural engineer, Federico, he spent a little more time in the remote village of Chajmaic.  Our project manager, Ricardo, had brought the plastic seedling trays, potatoes for planting and cilantro seeds.  Federico taught introductory classes in how to cultivate these products in order to allow the participant families (the students) to become self-sufficient and develop necessary practices for their agricultural businesses.
