DARÍO CHÁVEZ, COFFEE PRODUCER
Care and protection of nature
Dario’s case is that of environmental teaching that is passed on to the next generations. This organic coffee producer at the Magnolia Miramar Community Estate, Colomba (Quetzaltenango), is the father of five young boys. All of whom he has taught to protect nature so that they can live in a healthy environment. This is all thanks to the knowledge that he acquired after carrying out the course of ‘Forest, Agroforestry, and Environmental Promoters’ in his community through FUNDAP.
“Students now know
how to separate inorganic and organic waste“
In addition, he was subsequently elected president of the Environmental Committee in his community, where he provided environmental talks, led solid waste management with the school, and the institute of basic education. Students now know how to separate inorganic and organic waste, which is used to produce fertilizer.
