Orlando and Jorge, a volunteer from Germany, worked at the greenhouse. Besides general greenhouse maintenance such as watering and weeding, they finished various tasks related to tree production—including seed collecting and planting, soil preparation, bottle cutting, and transplanting saplings.
Planet Drum is opening a new composting and greenhouse facility in the Astillero neighborhood with local contact and nature enthusiast Jose María. The area was cleaned up in order to begin soil production. Organic waste from the Bahía produce market (mostly damaged fruit, which is abundant and will decompose quickly) is being collected regularly and delivered to the Astillero, where it is added to rotating compost piles for soil production.
