Food forest it! Sprouting a world of love, harmony and abundance

Agroflorestar, presents the fascinating story of family farmers of Barra do Turvo, in the Ribeira Valley, Brazil. Originally working with the slash and burn technique, the soil of their farms were becoming worn out. The film shows how the introduction of agroforestry system revolutionized the lives of over 100 families. Today, almost 17 ​​years after the beginning of Cooperafloresta through the project Agroflorestar, the ideas of a sustainable agroforestry reached the MST, (movement of the workers without land) where in areas degraded by monoculture, food forests are being planted. As Mr. Zaqueu says in the film: "The MST has the technology to gathering people, and Cooperafloresta has the technology to gathering plants." Positively the film demonstrates how we can have a sustainable alternative to agriculture without destroying the planet.
