“Organic vegetables are distinguished by the “Agricultores del Clima” seal in Cartago, Costa Rica”
In 2013 farmers from Association "Las Brumas" in the north of Cartago, Costa Rica, implemented Cam(bio)2 methodology in their farms, after that, they opt for the use of the seal “Agricultores del Clima” in their products. This seal informs the consumers about the good agricultural practices that these farmers do, this way they contribute to mitigate climate change and also they can differentiate their products from others, in the local market.
The north zone of Cartago, is the place where most of the vegetables consumed in the country of Costa Rica, are produced, and most of the farmers in this region use conventional practices. Because of this, it´s very important to highlight the efforts made by farmers associated to “Las Brumas”, especially about using organic production in their crops with sustainable practices that do not harm the environment.
