All while creatinging local jobs and keeping the majority of the physical assets and resources in Costa Rica.

      Excelent interview, Joshua is a great leader, very clear in his goals. He develops amazing projects. As a Food Engineer, I´ve been working with him at Verdenergia Farm reseaching at CIPRONA and CIPA, the idea is to create innovative ending products (natural extracts, cosmetic and nutraceutical), organic rizhomes and turmeric and ginger are considered intermediate crops in permaculture, it is also true that they both have preventive, regenerative and corrective chemical bioactive principles.
