The Archdiocese of Concepcion in Chile has begun construction on a greenhouse to grow vegetables, a new project which will contribute to the inclusion of young people with Down syndrome in the workforce.
The vegetables will be raised using organic methods. The soil will be enriched with compost.
This initiative builds on an August 2014 initiative, where young people with Downs syndrome provide personalized service for clients from businesses and institutions.
The greenhouse will span 1400 square feet. Its roofing will be made of long-lasting polycarbonate. It is expected to be ready within a month and a half.
