Event Description

Farming and farmers are still at the end of the production chain, almost invisible to the modern world. Justice is the main idea we want to develop in our project in the farm: social justice, education justice, and welfare justice. In a 300-Ha coffee farm in Chiapas, Mexico that started in the 1920s, there have been a lot of changes and improvements, but there are also things that haven’t changed. The ceibas are still here, the migrant birds are still coming, the fern trees are overwhelming, the rivers are still running, and more than 187 different species of spiders and ants, 50 species of tropical trees, 200 species of tropical birds, and over 800 species of plants have their home in the farm. During the last year, the farm started another effort to improve the education projects. Practically all the farming activities — seeding, planting, trimming, watering, composting and harvesting — are done by the hands and will of hard-working farmers. We are already experiencing some changes, and our dream is to preserve that enthusiasm and will to keep learning and offer a path for people to become genuine biodynamic farmers.
