Views On The Farm

I defined a series of positions from where Rodolfo Ferrer will take pictures every week, so that we can see a constant update of the different areas of the forest farm. Each of the photos will be the start of a series that you can follow here:

Guided Tour 2009

The planting of the app. 1000 forest trees was completed in June 2009. We were walking to the different sites of the farm and Gabby Mondragon is explaining which trees were planted in the area. We did a similar tour in 2008.

Richard Thomas Visit

We were very happy to have Australian artist Richard Thomas visiting our forest farm! So far he is one of the few people who has seen what we are doing with his own eyes.

Rain And Water

In July it was pouring endlessly so that we had trouble continuing our work. It was hard to cross the stream on the way to myforestfarm.

Our Accomodation at Sister Luding's House

Sister Luding has a nice house in San Josep with a guest room, where we can stay when we visit myforestfarm. It is only a few minutes away from Rodolfo Ferrer's house and 20 minutes by foot from myforestafrm.
She is a wonderful host and we always have a relaxing and fun time with her. Her home cooked food is delicious. Our favourites are Sinigang Guava and Chicken Adobo.
