|The garden, back when you could go inside.|
For years, children from local foundations and adults with down syndrome from a neighborhood home did productive work and got exercise - as well as learning healthy eating habits - in La Huertolaria, an unused lot in La Candelaria which residents converted into a public garden. Not only that, but neighborhood restaurants donated their organic waste to be composted.

Now, the kids are on the street and the people with Downs are sitting at home. The property is empty and unused. And some bureaucrat feel satisfied that he did something.
|Today, the garden is shut.|
