Challenge

Many farmers want to grow fruit and timber trees for their food and income needs. We are also interested to assist them for climate change mitigation and improvement in the biodiversity. The main problem is that high-quality fruit and timber tree seedlings are difficult to purchase and they are expensive. There is a need to grow them and distribute them to farmers in a cost-sustaining basis.

Solution

We will grow high-quality fruit and timber tree seedlings in our seedling nursery and then distribute them to farmers in a cost-sustainable manner. This means that they have to pay the seedlings from their harvest later on and in so doing this will be more easy for them. We shall do the raising of the seedlings in our seedling nursery. Aside from distribution will also be the provision of technical support.

Long-Term Impact

Climate change and with it severe changes in climate is very real and devastating to farmers. Farmers are becoming very poor and have no access to productive resources such as fruit and timber tree seedlings and we shall provide these. Our long-term objective is improvement in food and incomes as well as climate change mitigation.
