Visit to the village of Muyuna de Anda:
In Muyuna de Anda, we visited the plots of several participants: with Pablo Criollo, we saw the diversification of his plots where cocoa, coffee, banana and forest species grow in a common relationship. For Mr. Pablo: “Without the forests, we would be nothing. We have deforested for too long; it is time to recover them.” In Ms. Susy Genebroso’s land, we observed the relationship between cocoa, cedar and banana crops. We also visited Mrs. Cirila, an elderly woman who is very interested in forest conservation using agroforestry systems. In her plot, she has species such as cocoa, cashew, cedar and capirona.
The village participants are very interested in joining forces and developing an economic alternative. For example, they plan to transform their products into jams or nectars, and thus give added value to their crops.
Thus ended the strategic visit to Tingo Maria, which allowed us to obtain information directly from the participants, and to listen to their experiences and requests in order to improve the activities and make the best decisions in favor of the participants and the progress of Envol Vert.
