Sano y Salvo - Safe and Sound, Primera Asociación Campesina e Indígena de Cultura y Producción Ecológicas en la Región Autónoma Atlántico Sur
Safe and Sound, First Small Farmers and Indigenous Association for Ecological Culture and Production in SE Nicaragua's Biosphere
Eulalio Alemán G. (President)|
Sano y Salvo is an association of ecologically farming families in SE Nicaragua, a 'biosphere of humankind'. 25% of the families are indigenous families (Rama). We grow food crops organically; the cash crops (up to 30 different ones) are grown in ecological, succesional agroforestry plots. Hairsheep, pigs and all kind of poultry are the farm animals. SyS's farms are examples of agro-biodiversity. Protecting natural biodiversity, forests, water, soil, climate, we stop migration. Sano y Salvo is involved in media work and lobbies locally, regionally and nationally. We process most of and market our produce ourselves. The hazardous project of law 840 (interoceanic channel) and other extractivism projects are threatening membership and people.
