We have been working in the community of San Cristobal for 4 years. We have grown from 12 urban farmers to over 100 family’s activity participating. The basic concept is that they transform their backyards into urban gardens allowing them to grow their own food to supplement that nutritional needs while selling the surplus within the community to generate much needed income.
They approached us about additional needs that they had. They asked us in the winter of 2019 to help them better run their ventures, so with the help of our h colleagues at Grant Thornton (Canada) we developed a series of workshops. Over 50 of the families participated in the workshop. The course started with an onsite workshop followed by 12 weeks of online classes.
