Mini Invernaderos, Marzo-Mayo 2022
El domingo 20 de marzo de 2022, nuestro agrónomo experto, Federico Arriola Cuéllar, llegó a la remota aldea indígena de Chajmaic, Guatemala, para instalar mini invernaderos en los patios traseros de 30 familias de la aldea que habían demostrado liderazgo en los últimos años. Este trabajo es un proyecto piloto y será un precursor de una segunda visita en 2023 de Federico y luego establecerá un invernadero más grande en 2024 para toda la aldea.
Here is what the orientation looked like on March 20th:
…and how we will measure success in this project.
The iron was treated with basic materials to make it last as long as possible in a way that also kept down the costs.
Measurements will be taken by the Guatemalan Ministry of Health through the Fray Bartolomé de las Casas Health Center.
The meeting with the doctor in charge of this work were held on Tuesday, March 22nd, together with Federico, and people were scheduled to go there in groups of 5 by 5.
Children will be given the most importance, since they are the ones most affected by malnutrition.
And the reports will have the endorsement of the health center.
Below are some photos from March 20-21 – initiating the project with orientation, a needs assessment, and information.
Everyone will have a greenhouse of the same size inside each house. In other words, there will be 30 greenhouses just like the one you see in these photos – with the covering added.
