In a gross area of three thousand 300 square meters, Martin and Teresa harvest lettuce, chard, okra, large white onions, radish, among other vegetables such as the tasty beet.
In addition to his industriousness, Martin is known for his honesty, a man who has rejected more than one proposal of bribes from unscrupulous people who try to live off the sweat of others.
''El Piti'' vegetable garden is an example for other entities, since that piece of land is cultivated by two people alone and demand for labor force willing to earn their living honestly. As so do Teresa, who is kind of a locomotive despite being 71, and Martin, who for his dedication received a certificate of national prominence in 2009, signed by Ulises Rosales del Toro, then head of Urban Agriculture in Cuba.
The results of the two workers of ''El Pití'' vegetable garden, located in Harlem neighborhood, invite us to work harder and avoid that the Holguin Agriculture System as well as the markets are not criticized by the local people.
