“Coming out to Santa Tirsa is wonderful and enlightening each time – it reminds you of what life is really about”

Katherine Villazón lives in nearby Valledupar with her son Johan-Sebastian. During the week she takes care of selling organic veggies grown at Santa Tirsa like plátanos (plantains), yuka, tomatoes and avocados in Valledupar, as far as her job as a self-employed physiotherapist allows. She also helps with the administration and finance of the Finca's operation.

On weekends she comes out to Santa Tirsa with Johan-Sebastian to spend time with her family and to help Icha in the vegetable garden.
