I’m producing a project, which will be published by Chelsea Green Publishing, about an amazing cooperative farm, Las Cañadas, in the sub-tropical highlands of Mexico.
The people of the coop are restoring the cloud forest, decimated by decades of cattle farming, providing all their own food using permaculture and polyculture principles, and all their building materials and energy. They conduct year ‘round intensive workshops for people from all over Mexico and around the world. The project includes English and Spanish language versions of the book and DVD. Bill McKibben, 350.org founder, and author Julia Alvarez (How The Garcia Girls Lost Theur Accents, Yo!, etc.), who also owns a sustainablecoffee farm in her native Dominican Republic, both have nice things to say about my project in the videos, link below, of our Kickstarter campaign for the English film version. All the information about our project is in the link below. I hope you’ll help get the word out about Las Cañadas by sharing the link below.
