#009 Estéban Acosta of Sembrando Flores and Viogaz: Biodynamics, Commercial Crops, & Home-Scale Biodigesters

May 4, 2021

Today’s episode is with Estéban Acosta of Sembrando Flores & Viogaz, Costa Rica’s leading manufacturer and installer of bio-digesters for home-scale, as well as commercial, uses. 

We discuss the spiritual side of agriculture through the application of biodynamic principles, growing “green manure” (mucuna beans), and the benefits of using a biodigester to process grey water and black water. 

Esteban is a consultant and international spokesperson for the biodynamic movement. 

This episode is sure to bring you value.

I hope you enjoy it!
