Summary

The project is a response to the problem of environmental degradation due to mono-crop agriculture and the use of commercial chemicals. The proposed solution is the establishment of self-contained farm systems that recycles water and nutrient, increase economic base by the raising of multiple complementary crops and animals and the training and deployment of a cadre of youth leaders to promote the system in their own communities. A total of 300 youths will be included in this project.

Challenge

The problem is environmental degradation and poverty among small, marginal farmers with the application of mono-crop agriculture and using poisonous chemicals in the process. Beneficial organisms present in the soil are destroyed and soil acidity resulting to poor crops usually happen. If the practice continue this will lead to desertification and extreme poverty for this generation and the future.

Solution

We will promote sustainable ecosystems that serve the needs of human populations without degrading our natural environment. In so doing we promote environmental protection while integrating the needs for food and income of poor, resource-poor households by training the youth to integrate plants, animals, landscapes, structures and humans into symbiotic systems where the products of one element serve the needs of another.

Long-Term Impact

Sustainability of the land and improvement in the lives of small-scale marginal farmers who otherwise will experience extreme hunger at present and in the future if they continue to practice mono-crop agriculture and the use of poisonous chemicals.
