AIM Research and Green Life Students Team Up on Garden Project

AIM Research Green Life Academy Costa RIca

A.I.M. Research and their motivated volunteers worked up a sweat with the students prepping and planting in the garden.  The students started the plants from seed in their recycled sub irrigated planters.  With a large amount of basil, tomato, chili and cilantro plants, the group began the transplantation process.   Romy, the A.I.M. team leader stated, “There’s a ton of sweat and hard work ahead of us, but it’s so much fun!! Our goal at the academy is to combine a native plant restoration section with a common fruit and vegetable garden. This is a long-term project with plenty of stuff to do, so extra helping hands are always appreciated” .  This is their second visit and AIM Research will continue will continue the garden project with students in the following weeks.

Below are some pictures of the most recent garden work day:

What is the A.I.M. Research Project?

A.I.M. Research Costa Rica, is a non-profit network that contributes to sustainability and the protection of our environment by utilizing the dedication and combined efforts of our volunteers to aid local protection and preservation endeavors. “Arco Iris del Mar,” A.I.M. for short, is Spanish for “Rainbow of the Sea” and is an environmental network in Costa Rica, operating since April 2012 and working closely with local communities to conserve threatened marine and coastal environments on a grassroots level, building up a showcase scenario that emphasises on a system approach. They  foster the protection of biodiversity by enriching the local community through environmental, educational and social programs.

 Volunteers from around the world can join on career breaks, student gap years and internships. They will work closely with our field research teams and in partnership with local communities while contributing to AIM’s approaches.
