We wish to generate human, social and economic abundance for our region, contributing to maintain the heritage and fight desertification.
Producing with organic certificates (Agricert) — all our products are a result of sustainable farming. We apply techniques to protect our soil and to promote the biodiversity of our milieu. Our production is small scale to maintain quality and to utilise as little machinery as possible.
In addition to us, our team also includes Paula Martins and Rosa Marques who live in our local village. They have been a part of Ervas da Zoé for five years, full-time and receive a living wage, as well as a share in annual profits.
We collaborate in partnership with the social inclusion association APPACDM-CB (Associação Portuguesa de Pais e Amigos do Cidadão Deficiente Mental de Castelo Branco) via the acquisition of plants that are produced by the patients." (Henrique Manso & Rosário Martins)
