In the mountains, nine kilometers above the city of Siguatepeque, is a wonderful organic farm called CEASO (Centro de Ensenanza y Agricultura Sostenible) that offers classes in organic farming methods and that next year has been certified to offer a bachillerato diploma as a secondary instituto educational facility, the only one in the country.  I took the nun and the orfanato’s seven oldest children there today to learn the principles of self-sustaining gardening in a half-day session whose results went beyond my wildest expectations.  The kids, captivated, learned about organic ecological methodology and about the importance of chemical-free food products they can raise themselves.  Their prayers to Don Rene Santos Aguilar, the director of this marvelous place, at lunchtime thanking him for his presentation brought tears to my eyes.  Please follow our journey from the bottom right pictures until our departure.
