Yesterday, Itza, Zoe, and I had the pleasure of driving 3 hours into the mountains and helping Julio build and complete greenhouses. It was amazing seeing a small community of builders and farmers come together and build these greenhouses just to help the community and increase the quality of farming. Although it was a cold and long day (leaving at 6:30 and getting back at 9:00) it was awesome seeing how invested Julio and others are in improving the community.
