Huasteca Regenerative Agriculture Experimentation Center Update

Updated: Sep 13

Today we are happy to share the progress that has been made on the bulk of infrastructure for the Huasteca Regenerative Agriculture Experimentation Center in El Chino, Tamasopo, San Luis Potosi.


We first broke ground on this project less than 10 months ago, and we have been able to keep the construction momentum going since the day we started. A big thanks to Steven and Maria Lewis for keeping things on track.


For this update, I will stick with just infrastructure lists so that the reader can get an idea of what is actually completed and still pending.
