  • Description

    Description

    We are to form a large regional cooperative, that through its activities and complex agricultural designs regenerates the earth and the overall landscape, to restore the flourishing, healthy and immensely fertile natural status quo of the ecosystem. Through harmonious combinations of intensive plantations, animal, insect and microorganism operations designed for and by the community and simultaneous educations programs custom designed for the local population, the local ecosystem will be restored in relatively short periods of time.

    The cooperative is to reach far out of its property boarders, creating countless meaningful occupations within the surrounding 6 communities while strategically implementing this ecological transformation in the entire region. The focus is set on producing and processing organic agricultural products sourced from diverse agro-forestry setups.
    This initiative creates a unique combination between creating economic opportunity within indigenous communities, while regenerating entire ecosystems.
