Description:
Visit Rico, a non-profit organization created in 2014, has the mission to strengthen the agricultural economy in Puerto Rico through sustainable agritourism to achieve food sovereignty. For this, we make efforts aimed at supporting the food cycle process, from seed and sowing until it reaches the agricultural market and its consumption. The initiative includes educational activities, ecological agritourism - to promote health - and the conservation of the environment aimed at tourists, residents, farmer and healthy food enthusiasts. We connect and collaborate with members from the agroecological community in Puerto Rico.
