Dantela Alba has been living in the jungle of South America for the past 12 years, working as a tour guide.
Her husband, Dansco Wooment, has a degree in agriculture and is a certified sustainable farm manager.
The couple also run a farm in a remote part of Bolivia where they produce grass fed beef, chicken and goats.
“It’s the least expensive way to grow food and the most eco-friendly,” Ms Alba says.
“There’s no chemicals in our land and the animals live with no pesticides or fertilisers.”
They have been farming the land for almost 20 years, but Ms Albaras work as a guide in South America, not on the farm, and has had to raise the prices of food to survive.
“We’ve been very lucky,” she says.
Dantel’s journey started in Australia, when her parents brought her back to Australia to live with her grandparents.
They worked at a factory before Ms Albays parents died, so she moved to New Zealand with her family, where she met her husband and daughter.
Ms Albas first started working in the tourism industry, but in 2003, she moved into the farming industry.
She became a certified organic farmer, and is now a certified farmer with the United States Department of Agriculture.
Ms Woomentin says his family farm is now in his 60s.
“I was born here in the US and it was all about food,” he says.
Ms Yentena is a Brazilian who came to Australia with her mother in 1989.
Her parents brought the family to South America when she was four years old.
Her mother was the first indigenous woman to travel to South Australia, and was able to stay with her father and younger brother while they went to work on the family farm.
Ms Yamentena’s parents are still alive, and are very proud of their daughter, Ms Yamenta says.
“She’s been a good, healthy, beautiful, lovely girl.
Ms Yedena’s husband, Alberto, is a farmer in the Brazilian Amazon. “
When I think about how happy I am that I have her and how beautiful she is, she’s my daughter and I love her.”
Ms Yedena’s husband, Alberto, is a farmer in the Brazilian Amazon.
Ms Lecia’s family moved to Australia when she started university.
She says she has always been interested in the local people and their culture, and she always wanted to visit.
“As I’ve grown up, I’ve found it more and more important that I see what the people are living and growing and making of the food,” she said.
The most common complaint from farmers and tour guides is the lack of money.
But they’re also worried about the impact on the environment.
“The impact is really significant and that’s because when people eat, they produce so much carbon dioxide,” Ms Yantena says.
This is one of the reasons why farmers need to use a combination of chemical fertilisers, herbicides and other techniques to ensure that their crops do not grow to be overgrazed.
“They need to take into account what they’re going to grow, so the nutrients that they’re producing will be beneficial for the environment,” Ms Yamento says.
A lot of people are worried about pollution, but they’re worried about climate change too, Ms Yenta says, and they also have concerns about climate instability.
“A lot of these things have been discussed and discussed but we haven’t had the solutions to it yet,” she explains.
Ms Tsezno says that while there are some things that are more or less on track, there are also things that need to be done differently.
“If the future is to have the climate changing and it’s going to be hotter, it’ll be much harder for farmers and ranchers to survive,” she adds.
“Farmers are doing their best to do what they can, but there are still some areas that need urgent attention.”
In the future, the environment will be more important than ever, and the future may be in your hands.
