Vegetable gardens bring fresh nutritional options to families in Estelí, Nicaragua
ESTELI, Nicaragua — Christian Children’s Fund of Canada is helping 300 families in Estelí, Nicaragua grow organic vegetables through the provision of seeds and training on how to plant and nurture crops.
“Before (other NGOs) gave us seeds, but we did not know how to plant them,” said Hector Manuel Perez Talabera, a community leader in Estelí. “Now I know how to do that with the training we received.”
Watch Talabera sow his seeds and talk about the value of growing vegetables.
