We planted 200 vanilla plants to diversify our project

We are constantly refining our concept for the transformation of monocultures into food forests and at the Refugio, we do lots of research and experimentation on the ground: last month, we planted 200 vanilla plants on the stems of our native trees to find out if we can make our polycultures even more biodiverse with them – they already combine over 1,000 plants from 10 species per hectare.
