We focus on the following programme areas

Plant Conservation

We assist people to identify & adapt plant resources which are valuable for their cultural, nutritional, soil fertility, medicinal or pesticidal benefits to ensure that they remain available to the next generation.  

Livelihoods

We work with communities of growers to select plants and value chains which represent income opportunities, and facilitate access to markets for localised economic development.

 

Skills & Education

We work with schools, training organisations and institutions to promote responsible stewardship, and enliven learning to enable children and their teachers to attain their goals.

Health & Nutrition

We support food availability, access and utilisation by promoting diverse cultivation, processing and storage to achieve food and nutritional security.
