Review for Centro de Capacitacion, Investigacion y Demostracion del Metodo Biointensivo de Cultivo en Nicaragua, Inc., Chatham, NY, USA
It is easy to advise farmers and gardeners to test their soil and improve it with organic fertilizers and sustainable organic practices like GROW BIOINTENSIVE. CCID en Nicaragua goes way beyond this by helping growers through each of the steps: how to sample soil, how to ship the sample to a high quality lab, how to know what organic fertilizers are needed to improve each grower's soil, and then ensuring that these fertilizers are available and affordable to each grower. This kind of guidance and thorough follow-through makes the goal of improving soil and growing more crops truly achievable for practically anyone in Nicaragua. CCID has also helped many farmers and gardeners in Nicaragua improve their yields by teaching the techniques of GROW BIOINTENSIVE agriculture, which is an outstanding food production method that requires few resources or inputs and is especially successful in both the wetter and drier times of the year. It has been my great pleasure working with each grower and each person involved with CCID en Nicaragua, and look forward to working with many more!
