Our Solution

Our solution of Inga Alley Cropping is based on the findings of long-term research by Mike Hands through Cambridge University. He wanted to find out why subsistence slash-and-burn farming consistently fails and, having determined the root cause-infertility caused by phosphorous leeching-how this system could be transformed into something sustainable-via the Inga Alley Cropping- in order to break the pattern of shifting cultivation that drives deforestation.
