Working on the Flowerbeds

Working on the Flowerbeds Working on the Flowerbeds

When sunny days arrive, our students work on the flowerbeds. Tasks are varied and so it is an ideal time for idle chatting.

While some students plant small lettuce seedlings in a quarry os Swiss chard or tomatoes in other nearby beds, some others remove weeds, rake dry leaves, water plants or simply accompany the group sitting and enjoying the outdoors. Every Saturday, after the theory class, students go out to work in the land. When the day is cloudy or very cold everyone choose to work inside the greenhouse where the accumulated heat is felt. But when the sun shines the preference is to work on the outdoor beds where you can enjoy the sun and sit on the ground.

Coordinators and teachers move among the stonemasons observing how the tasks are carried out, giving recommendations on how to plant and the distance between plants, how to remove them and how to maintain the orderly mason to facilitate growth and subsequent harvest. 

All the tasks that are carried out are important to achieve the objective of harvesting in the estimated time and to learn about the processes of the vegetables and to be able to replicate it.

The Pacheco Community project teaches gardening so they young students from the area can have a job that improves their job opportunities; but it is also a place where they can learn to listen, accept differences, think about associative projects and feel part of the same community that contains and understands them.
