Review for Camino Verde Inc, Concord, MA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I lived on the farm in Madre de Dios for about 3 months, and it was by far the most meaningful and educational experience I've ever had. Not only is Camino Verde doing the right kind of work, but the organization is an integral part of a farming community, with it's hand on the pulse of that community's needs - quite literally on a personal basis. This makes Camino Verde sustainable beyond their farming techniques - they're sustainable as an organization, working in harmony with local people, local plant species and local tradition; maintaining an unmistakable atmosphere of respect between themselves and all others, human or plant.
It was clear to me that the relationships within the natural world, and our interaction with those relationships as humans runs deeper than is often imagined. The work that Camino Verde does in the preservation and exploration of this web is important on more levels than can be listed, or perhaps, understood entirely from afar. More research into specifics or the organization, and signing up for their periodic missive via email (always beautifully written and inspiring while simultaneously informative) would perhaps give one more insight into how important CV is to not just me, but everyone.
