About Jael Bildad Cruz Castillo

Jael is a Forest Engineer with a Master’s in Agroecology. She currently works as a teacher at the Faculty of Natural Resources and the Environment of the National Agrarian University (UNA). Since she received the first Analog Forestry (AF) workshop in Costa Rica, she became passionate about the subject because it is focused on ecological restoration and it can also be considered as a practice that mitigates the effects of climate change. That is why she took the initiative to put it into practice on a plot of the El Plantel farm, owned by UNA; In this sense, the objective of the FA plot is to increase the amount of flowers available for the beehives that UNA has on said farm, so that only honey species will be established.
