What is "EL ALMENDRO" (Almond Tree)?
The Almond Tree is a small tree, with a trunk that almost never grows straight but can reach a great height and which bears fruits famous for their therapeutic properties. In the East, the almond is also called "guard" or "alert", because it is the first tree that blossoms, even before the awakening of spring, and even sometimes, it blossoms in the winter when there are no leaves on the tree. Just as the Almond Tree watches over in nature asleep, we want to be alert and make sure that this goal which entails recovery is accomplished. The origin of our name is found in this tree.
It is intended to give a message of HOPE in the midst of such a complex reality, something STARTS TO CHANGE.
This is the message from El ALMENDRO.
