New driers use indirect heat, preventing smoke contamination and bringing the leaves up to our standards for use. ❤ Bonus: Richer color! Really big bonus: Lower respiratory risk for workers!
The new driers are powered by chipped laurel branches remaining after the leaves are removed. Smart? We think so.
Communities don't have to wave goodbye to their young people. We've provided scholarships to several local young women to study forestry engineering. We hope for them to return home and oversee the co-op's collection and forestry management practices. You go, girls!
