Community Greenhouses in Sacabamba
Over the summer, Mano a Mano has been working on completing 3 large community greenhouses in Sacabamba, Bolivia. Each community greenhouse is the equivalent of 7-8 normal greenhouses.
This project has been a collaboration between Mano a Mano, the municipal government of Sacabamba, the local community, and volunteers from Oxford Development Abroad.
Mano a Mano’s Center for Ecological Agriculture (CEA) provides training and simple technologies to improve food security and nutrition for Bolivian farm families.
The CEA Has Grown Since its Inception in 2012
The CEA was started in 2012 with the goal of demonstrating good agricultural practices in action for rural Bolivian communities, and the site has been growing over the past 4-5 years to include many more tools & techniques. Also, 3 out of 4 Mano a Mano’s counterpart organizations are now on the same site as the CEA, which helps with integrating some of our projects, such as the sorting and distribution of donated supplies shipped from Minnesota.
