Organic Fertilizer

Producers in Timbio, Colombia formed the Orgánica cooperative in 2005 primarily to access Organic Certification and seek a market for a more sustainably produced product. True to this spirit, this Seeds grant will fund the construction of a “biofabrica” to produce liquid organic fertilizers. These organic inputs will benefit the soils and help the farmers in the neighborhood of Guayabal increase their yields while producing high-quality coffee.
