AGRICULTURE & LIVELIHOODS
Sustainable organic farming
Wild-harvesting of medicinal and aromatic plants accounts for an estimate 90% of the country’s herbal plants sourcing. Soil erosion and irresponsible harvesting have drastically reduced the quantities available and traceability of the products is becoming increasingly difficult.
The farm produces sustainably-grown organic herbs for local and international traders and processors of herbal oils. This provides additional income opportunities for local farmers. Once being organic-certified, it will open access to international and local markets.
The farm owns a seedling nursery to ensure quality of inputs and employs local farmers for all works related such as land preparation, planting, and harvesting.
