Vegetables and Herbs

In the area chemical products are not used, for the control of pests and diseases are made with the same plants produced in the area such as; chili, garlic, onion, tomato, cempasúchil, parsley, etc. The association of crops is also carried out (it consists in the joint planting of different crops, with the intention that they help each other in the capture of nutrients, the control of pests) and the rotation of crops. The soil is disinfected with lime, or tobacco preparation to eliminate nematodes, bacteria or fungi from the soil.

The residues of the vegetables are returned to the compost or food for earthworms, so that at the end fertilizer or liquid fertilizer (humus) is obtained to put them back to the planting beds.

All the cultural activities of the crops are efforts of our youth, volunteers and parents.
