Me and my companion are both passionate for social-economic development and environmental sustainability. We decided to found Tierra Orgánica after a deep research on the reality of farmers in our country. During this investigation, we found out that there are some big problems every small farmer has. Such as a lack of facilities to get nursery gardens, no technical advice in organic production for small farmers, a too long supply chain from the farmer to the final customer which leads to very low prices for the farmers products etc.
We as Tierra Orgánica decided to create an education project which aims to develop people in economic and social aspects as they produce organic fruits with our support. We manage our own nursery gardens, and sign contracts securing the buy of their fruit with baseline prices for their organic certified products. We manage the first organic-group certification in fruits different than bananas in Ecuador.
Our project started just one year after a huge earthquake hit Ecuador in 2016. With Tierra Orgánica we are working on giving new opportunities to our farmers to restore their lives after this disaster.
