Every Thursday, community work is carried out in the villages of the Peace Community of San José de Apartadó (CdP). This guarantees the food sovereignty of the members of this community, through the cultivation and care of the collective land. Some of the products grown are typical of Colombian farmer culture: rice, maize, yucca, bananas and cocoa. The cultivation, as well as the process of harvesting and subsequent processing of the product, is carried out in a natural way, without the use of machinery or chemical products that are harmful to the environment. This community work stands out for its deep connection with and respect for nature and the territory. Even the animals are protagonists and faithful companions in this process. Donkeys, mules and horses are the favourite means of transport because of their strength and endurance on the paths immersed in the vegetation of the region. The human being, the land and the animals are therefore elements of the same circle that strengthen each other.
