Sustainable Culinary Journeys in the Heart of the Colombian Páramo

During my time at Finca El Sandalo, an organic farm in Miraflores, Boyacá, Colombia, I immersed myself in the world of sustainable farming. Surrounded by the Páramo, the fastest-evolving biome and one of 26 unique Páramos in Colombia, I learned about the delicate balance of these ecosystems and the dangers posed by over-farming and overconsumption in the West. This experience underscored the importance of eating fresh and local, which benefits both our bodies and the planet. I was fortunate enough to cook with local, fresh ingredients, gaining a profound appreciation for the farm-to-table journey. My knowledge of sustainable farming practices now allows me to highlight the crucial work of small farms like Finca El Sandalo, showcasing their efforts to preserve their local flora and fauna and protect the Páramo, a critical water source and biodiversity hotspot​ (Marca País Colombia)​​ (ActionAid)​​ (Frontiers)​​ (One Earth)​.
