A new three-phase initiative, implemented by EARTH University and financed by Patagonia, launched in June and plans to advance regenerative agricultural practices on cacao farms in Costa Rica. The initiative — based on one of EARTH’s model farms —plans to educate, train and strengthen regenerative agricultural practices of 50 cacao-producing families in the province of Limón.
