Part of the workers village, La Hammonia Selva Negra. Over 200 hundred full time staff work at La Hammonia, and they are mostly families. These houses are where the staff live, and have electricity, running water and indoor bathrooms; these are not necessarily typical living spaces for Central America. There is a school for the children and a clinic where medical and dental care is provided free to the staff and children. There is a communal kitchen where meals are served, using ingredients all produced on the farm. Many of the houses have 3 generations of Selva Negra staff, and there are even retirees still living here. The people are looked after and supported, they are family. First Crop works directly with Selva Negra and is a strong partner in supporting this incredible farm. We are ensuring that the great work done at Selva Negra continues and grows, because we are truly inspired by what they are doing. It was a blessing to spend time there and to meet some of these amazing people and hear there stories, which we hope to share over the coming weeks.
