Feedback: 
We got a very positive feedback from Erasmus students, Refood and the people of the farm. They loved the activity and all of them were very happy for helping in such a different way. In the same time, learned a little bit about the culture of Covilha and knew the region a little bit better. It is a activity to repeat!
