Review for Centro de Capacitacion, Investigacion y Demostracion del Metodo Biointensivo de Cultivo en Nicaragua, Inc., Chatham, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The sister city program I have worked with has a small sustainable agriculture program in place for a rural village of Nicaragua, and BioNica has provided extensive training for that project. Currently, we have a young man from that village working as an intern with BioNica, and as an end goal he will provide training to upwards of eighty families in the soil techniques he will learn. This can vastly improve the quality of life for people in areas such as this village, where nutritional levels are nowhere near adequate. In this way, BioNica is contributing to a much better life for Nicaraguans. The organization also provided training for a home gardens project to an urban community that my sister city program works with, including a demonstration garden at a local pre-school, and again this project has been successful so far and has contributed to better living conditions for very poor people. BioNica has simply been an excellent resource for these projects, and their staff and overall goals as an organization are highly recommended.
