When asked what inspires him, Lucas answers “I give thanks and praises to my Creator who is my inspiration. I plant trees because I love to see them grow and produce” He recalls “I started my farm because it is my way of surviving; I have always been fond of Mother Nature and during my life, I will realize my goal. Although I have not met them all, I am determined to complete a great portion of it before I leave this world”.
