Smart farming


The coffee plants were planted under fast growing trees that provide shade. Certain trees are good for providing nitrogen. There were banana trees, squash, corn – a diversified farm. Large squash were dried to use as bowls and hold water or food. Much better than using plastic!

Proud farmers explained their techniques. They can double their yields and quadruple the variety of vegetables for their families. They now grow a cash crop to provide education for their children and to pay field workers salaries.
