GCG Paraguay goes Organic!

24 Apr 2017
 

Team GCG Paraguay is moving along with the organic efforts across the world and created their own in-house organic garden. They began the project with the creation of the garden, built in recycled pallet wood beds.  The team took advantage of the available resources, such as the use of the external areas of the industrial plant, the raw organic remains from the production of fertilizers, and techniques for the rearing of the California red worm used for production of fumes, which are very beneficial for the crops. The idea is to plant short-cycle vegetables, such as: zapallos, zucchini, eggplant, paprika, tomato, lettuce, chard, cilantro, watermelon and squash, under the philosophy of ¨zero chemicals¨. Additionally, the team proudly shares that: “we have started the project with the cultivation of pumpkin, zucchini, squash and cherry tomatoes, some of which are shown in the photographs below.”
