Our Tierra Radiante Project – Roots to Glow
We have finally taken the next step in our journey and launched our Tierra Radiante Project with our communities. The community-run farms use a technique known as Agro-Forestry, which imitates the native biodiversity of the region’s flora and fauna, by planting the trees within the existing environment. This farming style goes beyond the conventional monoculture techniques and even beyond any organic certification. This type of forestry approach helps to rebuild a sustainable ecosystem and empowers rural communities while protecting the local biodiversity.
At NAYA, we work within the natural cycles of the earth, using farming methods that humans have been using to grow and harvest plants for millennia, which highlights specifically the importance being organic. Organic farming sustains the health of soils, ecosystems and people. We don’t use any products that would harm the soil we plant in.
