    Description

    We are Sandra and Alejandro, we came to live in Isla Lemuy, Chiloé in 2016 to settle with a rural bed & breakfast in a house that has a native forest of 10 hectares. Isla Lemuy is the only island/commune that exists in Chiloé. It allows us to be more autonomous than the other islands of the Archipelago, and it also allows us to live the experience of being part of a community anchored in agricultural traditions that are part of the world's agricultural heritage. . FAO grants a heritage seal called GIAHS and we have obtained this seal because we feel and think that subsistence agricultural traditions are an important part of low-scale human development. Because they are not industrial processes and are anchored in family and territorial culture, alive and present.

    Nosotros somos Sandra y Alejandro, nos vinimos a vivir a Isla Lemuy, Chiloé el 2016 para instalarnos con un hospedaje rural tipo Bed & Breakfast en una casona que tiene un bosque nativo de 10 hectáreas. Isla Lemuy es la única isla/comuna que existe en Chiloé. Nos permite ser más autónomos que las otras islas del Archipiélago, y también nos permite vivir la experiencia de ser parte de una comunidad muy anclada en tradiciones agrícolas que son parte del patrimonio agrícola mundial. La FAO otorga un sello patrimonial que se llama SIPAM y nosotros hemos obtenido este sello porque sentimos y pensamos que las tradiciones agrícolas de subsistencia son parte importante del desarrollo humano de baja escala. Porque no son procesos industriales y están anclados en una cultura familiar y territoral, viva y presente.
