Visit to Auxiliadora’s agroecological farm plot
Auxiliadora Rugama is a peasant leader in El Porvenir in the Santa Adelaida community in Esteli. In collaboration with the Asociación de Trabajadores del Campo – ATC as well as programs coordinated by the Sandinista government, she has been developing her own diversified farm plot with a variety of animals, trees and crops.
The farm plot on Auxiliadora’s property is part of the replica of the Montañita’s agroecological demonstration farm. Through the support of the Friends of the ATC, Auxiliadora recently planted 40 citrus and avocado trees as well and installed a rainwater harvest tank. She also installed a biointensive garden with help from the ATC and IALA Ixim Ulew students from the department of Esteli.
Please stay tuned for an upcoming update on all of the agroecological demonstration farm work that has been implemented in 2021 thanks to your support!
