In Gettysburg’s sister city of Leon in the country of Nicaragua, the pandemic comes wrapped in more uncertainty than few other places in the world. There is no sure sense of whether things are worse, or getting better, or even how bad Covid-19 has been. Many projects supported by the sister city program of Project Gettysburg Leon (PGL) work with excessive caution or have even shut their doors temporarily.

The PGL gardens project is active with young students again, after months of the gardens being maintained solely by the college students who guide this project. With many schools unattended, it was difficult to have younger kids be part of the work. Cautiously, some of the children are now helping with the gardens and learning about nutrition as initially planned.
