NAVARRO, Francisco (Paco) Marti - Director

Recommended Posts


The chocolate, cocoa beans and coconut business has taken Paco to the Middle East and Asia for many years, introducing him to palms and their multiple uses. But his passion for all palms started when Paco became a member of the Spanish group Amigos de las Palmeras, and through them, the IPS. Since 2009, Paco is Secretary of the Spanish society ABEPYC. Travelling to the 2010 Rio Biennial, the 2011 mid-term IPS Board meeting in Tenerife, and organizing a Valencia post-tour for some of the IPS Board members after Tenerife provided Paco with the opportunity to meet other palm lovers. A group from ABEPYC went to visit Venezuela and the AVEPALMAS Venezuela Palm Society early in 2012, “where we have met old friends from IPS and made still more friends from the local society AVEPALMAS. Most importantly, we have learned more about their beautiful palms.” Paco goes on to say “My aim is to continue working worldwide toward contributing to the broader knowledge of palms, especially in the Hispanic world.”
