Today we woke up bright and early at 5am. We traveled to a community of farmers and woodworkers called La Garnacha. We encountered many farm animals, hardworking people, and BAMs (Beauty Appreciation Moments) there. We were educated in the people’s ways of farming without pesticides or any type of chemicals. They made their own fertilizer using a variety of ingredients including cow manure, worms, etc. Also, we had a great opportunity to buy souvenirs such as hand-made sculptures and their very own La Garnacha coffee. Some of us even had the chance to carve our own marble sculptures. At lunchtime, we ate at Pablo’s (our host) comedor where we had a delicious and rare treat, pasta. Then we spoke with Pablo and other adults in the community about our CAP (Community Action Project). Our delegation decided to use our money and hard work to create a much needed library in the community and we are very excited to begin with it. The last surprise of the day came after the farm when we were able to use our free time to visit the other Estelí delegation. It was great to see old friends and meet new ones. Overall, it was a very productive and tiring day.
