Environmental Issues & Principles of Agroecology Workshop
This morning we hosted 27 students from the Cuenca Educativa Guardana de Oruro for a workshop at our Center for Ecological Agriculture (CEA). The workshop topic was Environmental Issues & Principles of Agroecology, and included a theory and practical section. In the practical section, students prepared a pile of organic fertilizer.
The CEA provides training & tools for rural Bolivan farmers that help improve food security and nutrition. In additions to farmers, Mano a Mano hosts students, university courses, environmental organizations, community leaders, and foreign travelers to demonstrate simple, sustainable methods to improve peoples’ farms.
