They are working on many sustainable practices, including biodiversity, creating methane for power from farm animals, that also create the basis of their fertilizer. A beautiful place, with many good people working co-operatively.

We had a great tour with Danny (or Donny). He was very friendly and knowledgeable. It was interesting to see how coffee and chocolate were made. The ox-cart ride is very short and a little hokey but fun picture to have.
