Ana Belén Rodriguez Gomez
Vice-President, Guadalhorce Ecológico
Location: Coín and other places in the Valle del Guadalhorce, Málaga
Products: Tangerines and oranges, lemons, avocado
The farm forms an island of biodiversity, compared to the strong urbanisation of the local area. The soil is rich in organic matter and Belén has many projects to develop: biointensive beds for vegetables; green manure; a greenhouse. She is passionate about soil regeneration, poultry use and the coexistence of species that grow naturally together, such as hackberry and avocado.
Belén has a small yearly production of tangerine and oranges, avocadoes and some lemon trees. She has olive trees that grow without irrigation and is planning a new plantation of carob trees, some pomegranates and other citrus.
