Originally hailing from the Hojancha area in Guanacaste, Costa Rica, Jose Mario has spent the last 8 years as an agricultural extension agent in Bijagual. In this role, he has dedicated himself to advocating for sustainable production practices among small and medium-sized producers in the Carara district. Professionally trained as an agricultural engineer, he was fortunate to be awarded a scholarship from MICITT, Costa Rica, allowing him to pursue a scientific master’s degree in Tropical Agroforestry. His passion lies in collaborative efforts, forging alliances, and assisting producers in establishing sustainable, biodiverse, and regenerative agricultural and livestock production systems.
