Abstract

Our team worked under the Departamento de Recursos Naturales y Ambientales to develop an education program designed to promote food self-sufficiency in the La Plata region of Puerto Rico. We interviewed local residents and experts to learn about gardening techniques and conducted a growing example to problem-solve gardening in Puerto Rico. The results of the interviews and growing example shaped our education program, which focused on maintenance, debris disposal, fertilization, pest control, and eco-friendly gardening.
