Taking care of business at Parr Field

20120613-123646.jpg

Today we got the group together to check out the progress at Parr Field.  Many crops are still emerging and we replanted some areas just to make use of the soil and hopefully harvest more sweet corn!  The main thing we were doing today was putting our drip irrigation lines in the bottoms of the furrows as opposed to the tops, now the water needs to go to the roots rather than the seeds.

Pictured above from left to right are some of our youth team known as “Sembradores.”  They are:  Lorenzo Martinez, Desirae Gonzales, Chris Duran, Kiko Pacheco, Rory Santistevan, and Carlos Garcia who is our teacher contact from Chrysalis High School.
