This project can have long term benefits to many other farmers seeking ownership.
Why help this family?
Young agricultural families, like Patricio's, are finding it extremely difficult to purchase a farmstead and continue their traditional way of life. Patricio's ancestors have been here forever* and he wants only to continue to live in his town and raise his family here in a sustainable manner. Besides providing a living example of biodynamic farming to for his peers, he has over many years been working with the foreigners, trying to teach them about his culture and traditions. He needs out help to continue his work.

We hope you become a part of this movement to seed this young farmer's dream of agricultural independence.
*Ancestral lands here are almost nonexistent, as Agrarian reforms only came to the area to reduce the classes of Patron/serf since 1972. His ancestors were serfs, agricultural workers for a Patron owner. While they worked the land, they did not own to leave to their children.
