Program Details

Rancho Don Dario is in the countryside where the cultivated areas took over the forest, now we want to change things and start a reforestating program. We want to plant native trees, fruit trees and ornamental flowers. Que todo lo que se plante se convierta en agua, aire, alimento, ornamento y casa para los animales de la zona.
