Interview with Bolivian agroecological producer

Nelly is one of the certified agroecological producers of Cochabamba that joined our Agrecol Trees project. As a leader of the farming community “Cercado”, Nelly coordinated the distribution of 50 plants to the community members of the two city districts of Taquiña and Tirani.

On a typical Saturday ecological fair in Cochabamba’s city centre – where certified farming communities can sell and promote their unambiguously marked agroecological products – we interviewed Nelly about agroecology in Cochabamba, the challenges behind it and the story of how she became an agroecological farmer.
