Capacitación para el Huerto Escolar

So much has happened in the past week!  Last Thursday, Christine, a fellow FSD volunteer held a workshop in the High School in Tola in order to educate the students and teachers how to create a nursery garden for the school.  Since she knew that the creation of a school garden is one of the goals of my project, Christine invited three teachers from Nuestra Señora de Guadalupe and me to attend the workshop.  A man from the National Forestry Association came from Managua to give the presentation and to guide the teachers and students through the planting process.  The presentation explained how to mix the right proportions of sand and dirt in order to allow for proper germination and maximum growth.  Everyone loved the workshop and was happy to learn the new planting techniques.
