  4. Inspection of the First Beds – 30 Families, April 6, 2022
    Federico inspects the greenhouses with Ricardo the day after the first class. To their amazement, what should have taken a week took one night. They worked through the night to put into place what they learned, taking to heart that the heat of the day was a tough time for the seedlings to be planted!

  5. A Bond Between Men of Honor
Our project manager, Ricardo San José Roca said, “It is an honor for me to have met my namesake Don Ricardo.”
