At the heart of all these stories is agriculture, a system, not only of food production but also one that maintains our ecosystem, our cultures, our health and the very survival of humanity.
Adolfo is possibly one of the most dynamic, progressive and positive farmers I have ever met. Faced with a changing climate, Adolfo has begun to plant over 60 different crops on his land, some which will thrive in times of flood, others that will survive drought. With rice planted in rows between his indigenous drought tolerant corn, he is guaranteed food for his family and an income all year round.
With Central America already feeling the effects of Global Warming, Adolfo is one of a new generation of farmers developing truly long term sustainable systems.
