Talamanca Land Bank

The Talamanca Land Bank is an investment cooperative that aims to protect natural rainforest ecosystems by purchasing, holding, and protecting properties in rainforest settings. It encourages sustainable & regenerative agriculture in harmony with natural ecosystems and restores selected areas to their natural rainforest condition. With the help of our land steward Cultivo, we promote these practices, while providing sustainable livelihoods and access to responsible digital technologies for farmers and rural communities.

And we are creating a digital currency where each token is backed by one square meter of protected rainforest land.

WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?

Rainforests are the lungs of our planet and they are in peril. They are being replaced by vast mono-crop agriculture and pasture for farm animals. Globalized industrialized food is not cheap: it is costly for the Earth, for the farmers, for our health. The Earth can no longer carry the burden of groundwater mining, pesticide pollution, disappearance of species, and destabilization of the climate. Farmers can no longer carry the burden of debt, which is inevitable in industrial farming with its high costs of production. Industrial farming is incapable of producing safe, culturally appropriate, tasty, quality food. And it is incapable of producing enough food for all because it is wasteful of land, water, and energy.

HOW ARE WE HELPING TO RESOLVE?

We are part of the solution to this problem through the building of resilience to climate impacts by protecting wild rivers, and healthy forests that naturally sustain clean water supplies. We are establishing land buffers between organic farmers and industrial mono-crop farming. And we promote environmentally-responsible and regenerative agriculture to help, equip, and thus empower farmers with education and means to practice responsible agriculture with technology tools. All the while providing opportunities for consumers to experience natural products that are of the highest purity and of high medicinal value.
