En SIEMBRA TRES VIDAS usamos métodos agrícolas que no solo armonizan con la naturaleza para producir comida ecologicamente sana y saludable, sino que también fomentan y mejoran la calidad de la tierra que se nos ha encomendado. Solo usamos semillas 100% orgánicas y no utilizamos ningún tipo de quimico en ninguna fase de nuestra producción. Cultivamos alimento para mejorar la salud de nuestra gente, nuestro suelo y nuestro planeta, esperando así poder servir de modelo para otros agricultores locales.

THE START OF A NEW SEASON
I have been invited to attend the first ever forum for local organic farmers by the Department of Agriculture. It is a 3 -day event in the town of Corozal, starting today. It is inspiring to see that finally, the Dept. of Agriculture has developed an Organic Farming Development Program in Puerto Rico!!! I am hoping to hear that they have some sort of an educational plan for local, conventional farmers to make a transition to organic and also education for the public/consumer in general and children of public schools...wish us luck!
As for us in Aibonito, we are trying out a mini-route with 2 local sponsors for 6 weeks. Their local delivery will be on Wednesdays and their assortment will be different from that for the Rincón Route: they will receive most of our "samples" and/or varieties that exists in very small quantities, usually left off from larger productions.
As for our participation in the Rincón Agro-Ecological Farmer's Market, we are considering taking a break from participating for a while. Our goods simply suffer a lot from the 48 hour wait between harvest on Fridays and sales on Sunday. It's also too costly to make double trips to Rincón on market weeks...so, we'll let you know of our decision soon. Regardless, we will continue to support and assist the market in whichever way we can for it's a beautiful endeavour and it's been a great experience for us!
We welcome our winter sponsors with great appreciation! Looking forward to seeing you all on Saturday!
