Continuing to Regenerate Agricultural Soils

During this period we carried out 45 technical assistance visits, including a total of 50 agricultural producers and gardeners, who continue to implement regenerative practices. To date, 100 backyard gardens are maintained throughout the Sierra Gorda, including orchards. Therefore, the subsistence production continues to take place, providing economic benefits to agricultural producers and gardeners, who decrease their spending on some staple products since they have access to natural products, free of fertilizers and chemicals.

The construction of six greenhouses for the organic production of tomatoes in Tonatico, Pinal de Amoles has been completed and the production stage can now commence. It will benefit local families, who will be able to generate income by selling their product at a regional level.

We have been working to incorporate mineral compost to 110 agricultural plots. As a result, we have activated more than 200 hectares of agricultural land, where we have returned health to the soil and improve its productive capacity, while working in harmony with nature.

We continue to provide technical assistance to 26 pilot ranches in the states of Querétaro, Chihuahua, Guanajuato, and San Luis Potosí, incorporating minerals into the pastures, practicing planned grazing and infrastructure planning, and carrying out biological monitoring.
