Supporting sustainability on campus
One of our long-term goals is for our campus to be completely self-sustaining. Our students learn important sustainability principles through participating in extracurricular projects while living on campus, and many have implemented these practices in their own homes and communities across Honduras.
On campus, some of our electricity and light are generated through solar panels. We have large vegetable gardens and a developed compost system to diversify our diet and care for the earth and soil. We utilize a hydroponics system for fish and water spinach. We filter water from the river nearby for use on campus, and supplement with a well and a spring that are both located on our property.
It is our hope that we can use these funds to improve our coffee farm and be able to create a funding source for the organization.
