Description: Concepcion Martinez Vigil is the vice president of the Octavio Ortiz community. He is a farmer who practices organic farming, but occasionally uses a bit of non-organic fertilizer. He is concerned by the climatic changes and flooding which increasingly affects the Lempa River. He believes that his method of farming, along with his hugely diverse crop system, is helping him to continue to feed his family and earn an income. His biggest concern is the summer temperature. A few years ago it was possible to work on the land all day but over the past few years, the mid day sun has become too hot to work.
