A Visit to the Algarrobos School in Canoa

We visited the Algarrobos School in Canoa to finish planting the second elevated seedbed with the sixth graders and assist with the garden projects at the school.

Camile, Dirk, and Julia help sixth graders make signs for the seeds they will plant.

The sixth graders had brought in mandarina [mandarin], naranja [orange], limon [lime], papaya and other seeds from home for planting at school. We mixed the soil in the elevated bed and planted the seeds with the students.

Afterwards we helped paint some of the bamboo around the gardens to make them look nicer.
