Colombia Tolima Planadas Fair Trade Organic
The ASC'SP Cooperative has become an exemplary association in just a few years of existence. Founded in 2014, ASCI'SP now has 80 members and cultivates 207 hectares of land collectively. ASCI'SP exists to benefit the indigenous Nasa We'sx group that inhabits the San Pedro vereda, south of Gaitania, Tolima. The Nasa people have great respect for the land they inhabit and cultivate everything organically, leaving as much native flora intact as possible as a matter of principal. The association has helped coffee growers on the reserve to improve agricultural practices and maintain organic and fair trade certifications that the members would have been unable to access independently.
