Santa Rosa, Corazones' agricultural center, contributes significantly to provisioning Munaychay, our children's village. It is important to us that Munaychay's children receive balanced and healthful nutrition. Fruits and vegetables are cultivated, largely organically, over an area of two hectares. We also maintain an apiary, guinea pig pen and chicken coop to produce our own honey, meat and eggs for the village.
Santa Rosa maximizes our self-sufficiency and thus insulates Munaychay from the fluctuations of market prices. Surpluses of vegetables or honey, for instance, can be sold at the market, with the proceeds reinvested in Munaychay.
