Cultivating pura vida: Cartago launches festival to promote organic agriculture

May 30, 2015

Fans of organic food rejoice, Cartago will host the first-ever Cultivating Pura Vida Festival this weekend to promote organic and GMO-free produce.

The event will run Saturday and Sunday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the National Center for Specialized Organic Agriculture of the National Learning Institute (INA) in San Rafael de Oreamuno, in the province of Cartago.

The free festival will feature the sale of GMO-free produce grown without the use of chemicals.  Attendees can also attend chats about the organic farming process and learn how to switch their farm to organic.

The Cultivating Pura Vida Festival also marks the launch of the Cartago Organic Fair, which will be held weekly by INA students.
