The production of renewable energy is necessary in places where its potential can be harnessed. Don Javier's garden, located in the Naranjal community, is made up of various vegetable crops which are used for the market and for personal consumption. The waste generated in the garden is of great importance and usefulness, since it allows obtaining energy from biomass causing a positive impact on the environment because the carbon dioxide that is produced does not reach the atmosphere, but is used by the plants for their photosynthesis process, resulting in neutral or almost zero pollution. An interview was conducted with the owner of the orchard to obtain information about the amount of crops that are produced. This research was developed with a qualitative method, which allowed us to know how the biomass potential behaves in the Abdón Calderón parish.
