Preserving Biodiversity

Educating the Next Generation

We partnered with local schools to install mini-coops, fostering educational workshops where children learn about ethical food choices, animal welfare, and the importance of local farming. This program has seen over 500 students engaged, many expressing a newfound appreciation for sustainable agriculture.
