Work on our ‘Noyer Maya and sustainable cattle farming’ project started 2016 with a visit from Nicolas Maraval, an expert in permaculture and eco-friendly farming strategies.
During his stay, we organised a communal works project so that our partner farmers could get first-hand benefit from his experience and put his techniques for soil preservation, sustainable water usage and sensible land use in agroforestry projects into place. Nicolas also led a group of local women in setting up a new communal garden near to their homes, and taught them the basic principles of permaculture.
We are also continuing our work on raising awareness about environmental conservation, and organised a screening of the film Colombia: Wild Magic for local children. This allowed the children to discover the extraordinary diversity of their country and the need to take better care of it in the future.
