Small flock shepherding is a long-held way of life, one that our guest, Mauricio Nunez Oporto, is working diligently to see flourish and sustain. He leads the Andean Pastoralist Livelihood Initiative, a multi-stakeholder project that lifts up the vision for life, family, and relationship that pastoralist communities (which produce fiber and food) are holding— and seek to continue well into the future.
