In response to the interest shown by teachers from the República de Cuba Elementary School, we organized an eight-session practical course to implement a community school garden. Sessions were designed to enable two groups of second grade students to germinate, grow, and harvest different edible plants in recycled produce crates. Making students responsible for the garden will allow them to be in direct contact with nature and with growth processes.

Biologist Lourdes Cruz, responsible for this workshop, is a neighbor who founded Estanquillo 32, a project that supports and encourages solidarity economies through the production, sale, and distribution of local products.
