Bahía Eco-Club Collaboration

There is a new ecological club in town, Bahía Eco-Club, which connects youth volunteers,  local students and international volunteers on environmental projects, such as tree-planting. Planet Drum has been assisting them with technical advice, volunteers, and trees. In cooperation with the Eloy Alfaro school in Bahía de Caráquez, they are implementing a new greenhouse operation and recycling center, utilizing an area of the school which has been abandoned since the 2016 earthquake to plant fruit trees, build a greenhouse, and collected recycled materials. Planet Drum has been participating with them on a weekly basis.
