for Puerto Rico but applicable to tropical regions
in general, this unique publication describes over one hundred
new tropical food crops (fruits, culinary and medicinal herbs, vegetables)
with high commercial potential.
VERDE is an eye-opener that exposes the myths,
dogmas and dangers surrounding our agriculture, the food industry,
health careand other important factors that determine the
quality of our lives.
VERDE is a thought-provoking publication that convincingly explains
why locally grown and processed food is better for your
health,our small-scale farmers, the environment and the local economy.
It is a practical guide to how everyone -city dwellers and farmers
alike - can get involved in growing foods and producing
personal health care, cosmetic and natural healing products.
short, ORO VERDE is a powerful manifesto that challenges reprehensible
educational, political and social policies, and offers
practical solutions. It is a book of hope and transformation for
people from all walks of life, and you are invited to
take part in the refreshingly revolutionary alternative it presents.
