In San Luis, Somoto, Nicaragua, the community meets for Farm School days with staff from the Lutheran Church in Nicaragua. Here two women who are part of a community group make 'camellones' or camel humps, to grow vegetables. The project is supported by ELCA and provides the community groups with a solar-powered pump that brings up water from 45m deep and a drip irrigation system for the cultivation of maize that they grow collectively in the village, as a response to the prolonged drought and many failed harvests the region is suffering.
