Ramón Antonio’s Family Has Begun to Harvest Their Crops

Santo Domingo, February 5, 2016


The family orchard created on December 9th, 2015, in La Zurza, Santo Domingo, has started to see results. EcoHuertos program has continued to follow up on the family providing them with guidelines on both the harvesting and managing of vegetables.

Ramón’s family is very happy with the orchard. On one hand it represents a source of food, and on the other it is a clean and appropriate space to share with all the family members. The family has been enjoying the harvest of lettuce and cilantro, while the peppers are still growing and the tomato plants are already blooming.

The EcoHuertos Program is planting seeds and harvesting quality life!
