Agriculture

What: We develop innovative and sustainable agricultural projects. Therefore we support the socio-economic development of farmers with the supply of plants to both individuals and local institutions. We teach farming and innovative gardening.  Additionally, we want to increase the number and variety of flora in the Gambia. We also demonstrate and implement the use of different and new varieties of nutritional and medicinal plants. 

Where: We are mainly working in and from Bwiam with a large agricultural project, but we also have a smaller centre in Chamen that specialises in nutritional and medicinal plants.

How:

  • Through tree nurseries
  • Through resource trees for grafting
  • Through a model garden including different irrigation systems
  • Through viable agribusiness models
  • Through demonstration, practical and theoretical training
  • Through a model tree orchard and nursery
