This 2.5 acre crop demonstration farm and training center teaches high Andes farmers to manage their scarce water resources and to practice ecologically sound agriculture while resisting the marketing of pesticides and chemical fertilizers by foreign corporations. Complete with greenhouses, small animal pens, alfalfa pasture, prototype farm ponds and cisterns, a biodigester, mulching and composting areas, and overnight stay rooms with ecological sanitation facilities, this facility provides hands-on experiences to ensure farmers are able to maintain the projects Mano a Mano has completed in partnership with them.
