During the first months of 2012, the Colibri Cloudforest Project has been focused on the construction of the Hostel in San Antonio, and the execution of different workshops with members of the community in topics like cooking and coffee growing.
The community has been very interested in learning more about healthy ways of cooking, and new ways to grow coffee that will reduce soil erosion and reduce the use of chemicals. These workshops have been led the RP project coordinator Norma Lecca, with the help of Rainforest Alliance. The coffee workshop was held successfully in San Antonio by a specialist in coffee production through agroforestry. The goal is to continue offering the residents management techniques that yield higher productivity from their farms so they don’t have to clear any forest.
The construction of the hostel has been on hold after a series of revisions to the infrastructure and design, but will be finished up in the coming months. The community and the RP Team are very excited about its completion!
