Student’s Vegetables Flourishing

Since the rains returned to NW Nicaragua, the vegetables grown by the students at the rural Instituto Augusto C. Sandino in La Carreta have flourished in the school’s vegetable garden.

A meal at school provides extra nourishment, and the process of creating it helps the students learn more about how to grow their own self-sufficiency.

Here are photos of a teacher preparing and students enjoying the pipian (a Central American squash, C. argyrosperma, genus Cucurbita).
