On a recent trip to Guatemala to check in with our farmer partner Manuel, we also took the opportunity to gather soil samples from two areas. The first area is where we have been working with Manuel to incorporate a long-term agroecological system with his coffee plants. The other area is from an adjoining parcel of coffee grown in the conventional, chemical-based way.
Great article! So happy for Manuel! It must gratifying for he (and others) to see the changes he’s making to the soil!
