Project Peru is growing and growing

Well, in one sense at least!

We have just started the second phase of our kitchen garden with the planting of our first fruit trees under the professional supervison of our agronomist and our gardener; the children will be involved over the years as the fruit trees grow. So far we have planted palta [avocado], limon [lemon], mandarina [mandarin], durazno [peach], chirimoya [custard apple] and lucuma [egg fruit].

And we continue with our garden in the refuge itself too, including growing this grand crop of yuca for the dining room. Also known as cassava or manioc, yuca, which originated in the Americas, is now a world wide staple crop.

And, yes, we have some bananas!
