Climate Smart Greenhouses = Greater Food Security

Climate Smart Greenhouses = Greater Food Security for Poor Farmers

 

650 farming families enrolled, 150 farmers providing greater food security for their families despite some of the worst droughts and floods.

 

We are proud to report first concrete, tangible results of climate smart greenhouses delivering quality produce using organic farming methods and considerably less water while generating sustainable farmer incomes.

 

Our heartfelt thanks and warmest greetings for the festive season ahead. You have all continued to generously support these efforts and we are all witnessing the positive outcomes that we all wished for - farming families securing greater food security for their families.

 

Please continue to give your support generously

 

With more and more farmers growing quality produce, adopting better, more organic farming practices giving rise to sustainable levels of income and equally importantly, with climate smart farming.

 

Progress till date:

 

Our partners in India have successfully enrolled 650 farmers and installed a total of 150 climate smart greenhouses to date! This means that we have laid the foundations for helping another 500 farmers to benefit from environmentally friendly farming methods that result in greater food security for their families throughout the year.

 

How did we achieve this? 

By providing the farmers with support and guidance throughout the growing season, equipping the farmers with better quality seeds, encouraging them to adopt organic farming methods and helping them to bring their better quality and nutrient rich produce to local and urban markets.

 

With your generous support we are developing better, more robust climate smart greenhouses and making ready a greater variety of crops that the farmers can sow and grow with confidence to help keep their soil nutrient rich and devoid of chemical fertilisers and pesticides.

 

With the help of a more scalable and affordable program, we are confident of equipping another 500 farming families with the tools and means with which to grow and harvest better quality crops that can provide for a more reliable source of income.
