Autumn Aid Program.
Food Processing and Preservation at Home Course

Autumn is the most prosperous season in Malinalco. It is the time to reap fields and recollect seasonal fruits, the productivity is so high that a surplus can be separated for winter. It is a great moment to teach families how to process the fruits and vegetables of their municipality, this will help preserve a large amount of food for the rest of the season, and it will help children and their mothers acquire a new trade to improve their economy.
