Farms in the Rainforest were opened with non-sustainable production methods resulting in severe soil, water and landscape degradation, causing rural poverty and migration to cities. This project promotes knowledge and training on environmental conservation and sustainable development forest farming, for rural economic rehabilitation, trying to keep these environment-minded farmers living on their families land and practicing Agro-Ecological techniques. Communities and students are a priority.
The project teaches and trains students and farmers in Agroforestry technologies and vegetable garden home planting, showing ways to obtain a better nature minded living, improved sustenance and more lasting and profitable agricultural results.
Two targets: 1-More than 6000 farmers and smallholders in local and neighboring counties to whom we demonstrate new agroforestry techniques. 2- Local students and communities members that we invite to our Wildlife Sanctuary to know the Rainforest.
