A promising harvest - Sierra Leone
Local, organic seeds may be considered the gold of the future. It can make regions self-sustainable, healthy and abundant!
Through our partner organization Entwicklungshilfeklub we will support a project in Sierra Leona. Here some information given by the Entwicklungshilfeklub on how our contributions are going to serve these families in Sierra Leone:
– Starter’s packages with seeds:
Every family receives a starter’s package with little banana and pineapple plants and local seeds with different kinds of grains, vegetables and tuber plants. With these healthy starting materials the families can then in the following years generate their own seeds!
– Efficient agricultural techniques:
The small farmers learn about ecological ways of farming in trainings. They learn how to farm without chemical fertilizers and pesticides and can thus contribute to more fertility and protect soil from erosion and toxical substances
