Self Reliant Agriculture's Demonstration plots at La Universidad Nacional de Piura
Our first full day in Piura started with a late breakfast. I guess the hotel staff was not used to breakfast at 7:30. After a half an hour wait they served us eggs, rolls, and fresh fruit juice. Oscar patiently waited while we ate our breakfast. He filled us in on what was going on.

They have a small nursery garden where they start some of the plants. They are transplanted when they are big and strong enough to go on their own.
