Agro Business

Growing our own food and ensure sustainable and economic farming within our community.

We face some substantial challenges, that we are committed to overcome by our agro business approach:

  • local poverty , causing the lack of (healthy) food and an unbalanced diet causing many physical problems.
  • lack of money to invest , in tools, seeds, organic fertilizers and bio-treatment.
  • lack of knowledge on nutrition, modern farming techniques, bio diversity, crop rotation and other ways of eco friendly and sustainable farming.
  • lack of manpower to structurely work the recently acquired land.
  • climate change , like anywhere else in the world, our region also suffers from drastic climate change, causing changes in seasons, and more extreme weather conditions.

We acquired land and we started growing our own food in an economic and sustainable way. Our first harvest will be potatoes, corn and cabbage.
