Countryside visit in the Agro Technical School Nr. 1!
The school is called “El Tatú” after an old shelter that is located in the countryside that belongs to the humid grasslands near the city of Zarate. In 1985 the will of the community to have a school that taught agro technical skills and knowledge ended up with Vladimira María Juana Catinelli von Bernard donating one acre of land and the construction of the school. That is how the school got the name “Carlos von Bernard”.
The 4th of May of 2022 Circular Influence visited the school, where they showed us different livestock. First we got to see their rabbit, pig and bird breeding. On top of that, we learned about the vermicompost they have in which the combination of worms and humid organic waste ends up creating fertile soil. The worms bring microorganism diversity and this practice contains natural plant growth hormones. Vermicompost is richer in humus than any other regular compost.
Afterwards, we gathered with teachers and the headmaster to present our entrepreneurship programs. Both the Young Innovators and the ClimateLaunchpad, to enhance an entrepreneurial attitude in the community.We want to warmly thank all who were involved in the visit for showing us around and spending together a session of learning and projecting.
