Organic Certification for 'Satsang' Homa Farm, Curacaví, Chile

Satsang is part of the Organization of Organic Producers of Curacaví

        On Friday, May 5th, Curacaví, OPOC's Internal Control Officer, Sebastián Morales, visited the Satsang farm to verify on the ground that it meets the requirements of the Chilean regulations to be declared an organic farm. During the inspection, Sebastián Morales approved of the organic Homa cultivation techniques that are used in Satsang, a farm that last year was registered with OPOC in Chile.

       The following weekend, on Sunday, May 14th, members of the Forest Guard Network, led by Isidora Huici and Fabián Guerrero, visited the Satsang farm to harvest seeds of native Chilean trees, such as Boldo, Quillay and Peumo, to help reforesting the hills affected by forest fires in Chile last summer.
      At the time, the volunteers of the Network also took Agnihotra ash to mix with the seeds, helping their healthy and vigorous germination and growth.
