Vision of Change’s mission was to gather information, educate the staff on the benefits of drip irrigation and assess the annual water requirement for the farm’s crop production in Los Quinchos.  Vision of Change and volunteers installed 500 lineal feet of drip irrigation tubing for watering the plants with harvested rain water. We installed water pumps for extracting water from the storage containment (instead of using buckets). We connected all three water storage containment to utilize the water for drip irrigation and to increase storage capacity to 50,000 gallons of water. Implementing drip irrigation system will conserve water while increasing crop yields to produce more food for the children.
