Creation of Bernardina Agramonte Family Garden

December 18, 2013


On Wednesday December 18, 2013, we undertook the planting of the Bernadina Agramonte family garden in Barreras Azul. The 30 x 20 foot garden is made up of thirteen walls located in the backyard of their home.

Members of the family took part in this activity including some children who make up the EcoHuertos Group of Las Barreras Early Education and Elementary School.

They planted the following: radishes, tomatoes, spinach, carrots, onions, okra, lettuce, celery, beets, eggplants, peppers, melons, cucumber, yellow squash and spinach.

The activity was carried out in a very pleasant and gratifying atmosphere, especially with the joyful energy of the participating children.

EcoHuertos welcomes the Agramonte family!

Since its inception the program has created a total of 26 vegetable gardens across the country in the provinces of Santo Domingo, Santiago, San Cristobal, Baní, Monte Plata, and Azua.
