João Teves, Oct 30 (Inforpress) – The corn festival that has been organized annually since 2009 in the Poilão dam, this year will be held in the São Loureço dos Órgãos municipal market, with the introduction of the baked food component.
The information was submitted to Inforpress by the Councilor for Education, Vocational Training and Youth of the City Hall of São Lourenço, Valdano Furtado, for whom the agricultural year “is not guaranteed” and the corn cultivation has a setback.
“But the intention is to promote not only green corn but also everything that is derived from maize, especially dry corn, hence the bet”, said the official.
He assured that the festival will have green corn, because there are contacts with some farmers who work in the irrigated land and also with City Halls of Fogo Island, that assure the supply of corn for the festival.
