Entrevista con Ricardo Romero | Las Cañadas, Granja Sostenible | DÍA 111

Here is my interview with Ricardo Romero, founder of Las Cañadas del Bosque, Huatusco, Veracruz, August 21st, 2019. We talk about his unique farm and learning center and how it has evolved over the years…



Fellow Long Rider Orion Kraus recommended I visit Las Cañadas del Bosque, a unique Agroecological Farm and Learning Center located just outside of Huatusco, Veracruz.

It was a great rest to stay there for 3 days while I got ready for the Mexican Altiplano further above. I met lots of interesting co-op members as well as students and apprentices of this unique example of sustainability.

I interviewed founder Ricardo Romero before I left as I knew he had many interesting and valuable things to share regarding the evolution and success of his one of a kind farm and school.


I hope you enjoy it, and that it inspires you to plant a tree and celebrate diversity..
