Donkey Day

Last Saturday 25 April was an interesting day in the vineyard in Ambite, based around animal power. People came from Granja Cando (a winery in El Bierzo), from ASZAL, and from ANDREA .

They were going to bring a donkey but they said the vineyard was too big, so in the end they brought a horse instead.

It was a great occasion for networking, chatting about all things ecological, nice lunch, and getting to know each other.
We're thinking about using a horse in the future, to replace the work currently done by a petrol-driven tractor!
