Puerto Rico is in the Caribbean, surrounded by sea water and very limited resources. Since 2011, we manage an agricultural, educational and community project in the town of Lares,the Proyecto Agroecológico Campesino/PAC. Our mission has been to produce food in a sustainable way, facilitate a practical learning space and share knowledge with the community. For this we work in the transformation of five acres, historically
exploited with agrochemicals for the cultivation of coffee and citrus fruits, in an integral farm where combines crop production, animal husbandry, resource management, restoration
of soil and ecosystems, inspired by the agroecological principles. These tasks have
been accompanied by self-training programs and workshops for small producers of the
region, practical student visits, open farms and support brigades between producers. We invite you to join us on our every day challenge to build a sustainable farm while we share knowledge and experiences. Our home can host no more than two person for ten days. For monthly staying, a property in the farm is available for rent at a low fee.
