Coffee and trees

Cauca and Tolima were key areas during the decades-long armed conflict between the Colombian government and paramilitary forces. Following the peace agreement, these areas are undergoing a major transition. Your trees here are planted next to coffee crops, helping restore degraded land and offering local communities an alternative to mining activities or unsustainable livestock farming practices that would otherwise spread through the region.
