Carolina Quiceno

Carolina was born and raised in Medellin, Colombia. She spent her early childhood on her family’s farm, climbing orange trees, walking the steep mountain ridges, picking coffee beans, growing sugar cane, raising chickens, riding horses and developing a deeper understanding and passion for Colombia’s biodiverse ecosystems.


It was in this environment that she first called herself a conservationist. After finishing high school she was accepted to the University of Antioquia in Medellin where she elected to pursue her degree at the prestigious and highly selective School of Engineering with a major in Environmental Engineering. Her senior thesis, “The Association of Macro-Invertebrates with the Decomposition Process of Coffee Grounds and Food Waste in Biodigestor Bales” demonstrated the pivotal role of Macro-invertebrates in the decomposition process of organic waste through unique Biodigester Bales which proved superior to traditional composting piles.


In 2021, Carolina graduated in the top 10% of her class with a Bachelor's Degree in Environmental Engineering with a focus in Agroecology. While maintaining her studies in college, she began a full time career for the Metro of Medellin as a Commuter Train Operator. While in Colombia, Carolina also owned and operated her own business, creating and selling Agro-ecological self-care products, developing her own oils and soaps, and researching the most natural, safe, and ecological formulas for human consumption. 

Carolina immigrated to the United States in 2021 where she worked with her family in Orlando, Florida. While in Florida she met Will and the two of them quickly recognized a kindred spirit in each other. During the early days of their relationship, Will and Carolina spent most of their time in the woods of the Ocala National Forest, boating on the St Johns River, exploring natural springs, kayaking, hiking, camping, and enjoying the natural beauty of Florida.


In 2023, They moved to the Pocono Mountain Region of Pennsylvania while he pursued his career and began laying the foundation for the Liberty Tree Ranch. Once in Pennsylvania, she quickly went to work establishing her new business, Bonita’s Crafts, which offers a wide variety of handmade and self designed repurposed clothing lines for women and children. While managing her own business venture, she began working on the Liberty Tree Ranch project as the Agricultural Director.


In this role, she has integrally impacted the LTR’s ecological conservation by organizing, researching, and developing the Ranch’s projected crop yields, farm designs and layout, animal care programs, and refining the conservation strategy of the Liberty Tree Ranch. By leveraging her extensive education and Colombian agricultural experience she has successfully brought “Permaculture” and "Agroecology" to the forefront of the LTR’s agricultural vision.
