In the Sacred Valley of Peru, Ecohuella is creating a lot of interest in local production and conservation of open-pollinated vegetable seeds among local farming communities. Now Ecohuella is helping smallholder farmers there to improve their access to water resources that are needed to irrigate the seed production and conservation plots and assist in wider use of organic fertilizers that are made on-farm. Ecohuella has also been providing more training opportunities and internships for young people on how to grow and conserve local, open-pollinated vegetable varieties, much of which occurs at its own demonstration plot.
