Written 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.
ORO 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.
ORO 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.
In 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.
