Esterillos Oeste Project
Esterillos Oeste, Costa Rica 2014-2016
Esterillos Oeste is a small fishing village where poverty is a daily struggle and jobs are few. We built a community garden near the local school where many mothers would come to help plant and harvest vegetables, and receive free produce. Here, they gained knowledge on the importance of incorporating vegetables in their daily meals for the prevention of chronic illness and general good health. Although the garden did not survived for long because various reasons; still, it was used as a platform to encourage residents to emulate a sustainable lifestyle.
