  • Description

    Description

    This is a compost project in Curanipe. We collect organic material from different restaurant and neighbors and form composting piles. Two times a week we turn them around and harvest them if necessary, then we sell a natural fertilizer without any chemicals in the process.
    Also in the same terrain we are constructing a Demonstrative Center, where applying techniques bases on Permaculture, Agroforestry and Agroecology. All this because we want to educate people around about the reuse of waste and also that a new type of agriculture is possible!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    We all speak spanish and english, and have a lot of knowledge cultivating soil, recovering its fertility towards a more friendly agriculture. We would like to exchange those knowledge with people that want to learn, but also learn about others from their own experiences.
    This is a project that has been composting for almost three years, we work with the community, and we are open to share our experience.
