AZ Puerto Rico First Day at 5 Days with our Earth fair

We participated in the 5 Days with our Earth fair, a yearly celebrated fair in our college campus. We bought a huge quantity of merchandise from “Harinas de Lares” a local and traditional chip maker from Puerto Rico to sell at the fair. We also sold ginger and turmeric which we had collected a few days earlier from our dear Dr. Custodio’s farm who is always a great help to us.

On Saturday, March 7th Alpha Zeta visited Finca La Perla in Mayaguez from 8:30 to 3:30.  Five members participated in the activity. First of all, we discussed with the owner, Luis Curvero, some of the present challenges the agriculture in Puerto Rico is facing and some basic information about the industry of the coffee in Puerto Rico. We shared a light breakfast for those who had not had any and proceeded to a tour of the property. Luis Curvero has many small crops in his property, including ginger, “pana” (Artocarpus altilis), “chironja” (orangelo) and cacao. The main crop of the farm is coffee, though there was not any to pick. After the tour, we helped pick cacao in many different spots. We were able to fill three sacks with cacao, and afterward opened them and put the seeds with the pulp in water. Afterward, we enjoyed a light lunch provided by the owner of the farm and then proceeded to participate in the process of grinding and packing coffee. Then, we were given a taste of the coffee produced at the farm and picked bananas, “chironjas”  and “panas” to take home with us.

On March 6 we visited a horse farm to help feed, clean pens and learn some history about the Puerto Rican purebred horses. It was a great experience because many of us had not worked with horses before. We are planning on revisiting the farm to learn more about horses and continue helping the farm owner.
