It's well known that one of our sections for the Patagonia Year course is called Service Project, where students spend one week with a local family developing some projects based on the family's needs. Throughout this experience, the students were guided and supervised by their instructors, who helped them to improve their interaction with the families.

In the pictures shown below, we can see the experience of the Patagonia Year 10/18/14 students, who helped Sra. Lidia and Don Manuel with the construction of fences and a gate, covering a greenhouse, sowing green beans and lettuce, and painting the house, among other tasks.

During this week there was hard work and commitment, but they also shared many moments filled with laughter, such as the culinary exchange that was celebrated: an evening of apple pies and fried tortillas.

They definitely ended their first semester with style and good energy!
