Spain - La Junquera - Portrait of Alfonso Chico de Guzmán, 35 years old, founder of La Junquera, a 1,100-hectare farm working with regenerative practices since 2015. It is based in the Northwest of Murcia, one of the most desertified areas on the Iberian Peninsula. The lands of La Junquera have been farmed for over a thousand years and the last 200 years have been managed in a conventional way, growing mainly grains. Alfonso Chico de Guzmán took the decision to transform it, making big changes by diversifying crops and implementing regenerative practices. The best practices are being transmitted to other farmers in the area.
