Meet Peter Kring, a nurseryman, and farmer who has 30 years of experience in tropical agriculture.

Peter has introduced many valuable species into cultivation in Costa Rica and maintains a collection of over 200 species of fruit trees.

His farm, Finca la Isla, on the Caribbean coast, offers a plethora of workshops in horticulture, medicinal plants, chocolate making, fermentation, and farm-to-table practices.

In today’s episode, Peter shares with us his insights into sustainability through producing goods to sell at the farmers market.

Peter is an advocate for farmers’ markets and is the president of the committee that manages the market in Puerto Viejo. 

He also touches on organic certification, what it takes, & whether it’s worth it.

Beyond that, Peter shares with us his preferred soil amendments and walks us through some of his fruit forest maintenance

I haven’t built up my audience enough to have attracted sponsors and all that, so even though it’s the holiday season, you get to support the show without my selling you stuff.

Isn’t that great!

So, instead of buying an organic cotton shirt or an online course, maybe you can just buy me a coffee!
