The agro-ecological school of the Laigüiraki Corporation is located in San Francisco, 45 minutes away (by car) from Bogota. Since 2005, the corporation works with farmer communities in order to implement a system of organic and agro-ecological poduction. In the school they not only exchange and difuse agro-ecologic technolgogies, but they look to involve the final consumers, mainly through experiences on the ground. The middle-term goal is to create a comercialisation network which allows the farmers to directly sell their organic fruits and vegetables to the consumers in Bogota, for a fair price.
