Yay for them! Two years ago when I drove from Ojochal all the way up to Alajuela I saw plantation after plantation— palms (for palm oil, which is ubiquitous in processed food) and bananas mostly. Monocultures in neat rows and columns, with all the concomitant chemicals to keep things under control. Very upsetting. Glad someone is fighting this disastrous deforestation. :(
