The Conuco of Marilú Barrientos

Marilú's son, Oswaldo Cisneros, was the one who began to cultivate his family's conuco. After he passed away, his mother is in charge of "the land", as she calls the place, and of the vegetation. Among the plants that Oswaldo planted, the most productive are plantain, ocumo, topocho, sweet pepper and tomato. Marilú has a business selling sancochos. Every Saturday she dedicates herself to it. In the morning she prepares it and in the afternoon she receives people in the conuco where she offers space to sit and eat comfortably. Taking care of the conuco and the plants is Oswaldo's legacy to his mother, who always remembers him with love.
