Projects

Ecuador Project

Since 2016 we have been working in the Ecuadorian Amazon and getting some amazing results with hugely increased yields of  maize and other crops. We have partnered with local agricultural colleges and NGO’s, and are working with local farmers to conduct a number of field trials.

Cameroon Project

Gaston Bityo

In 2009 Gaston Bityo invited Rainforest Saver to work with him and his NGO, Volunteers Serving Development in what became the Cameroon Inga Project, of which he is now the National Coordinator.  He has introduced Inga to farmers in at least 25 villages, participated in studies to find best practice, demonstrated the effectiveness of Inga to restore soil fertility, worked with some schools, and has trained several other Cameroonians to become Inga promoters.

Cameroon Project

Atanga Wilson

Atanga Wilson was trained as an Inga promotor by Gaston Bityo. He has worked with over 100 farmers from 16 villages in the Anglophone region of Cameroon, and with several schools.  He is participating in a study to find best practice, and has collected data showing that growing cocoa, maize and beans with Inga gives much higher yields than without it.

Cameroon Project

Linus Arong

Linus Arong was also trained by Gaston Bityo, and works in the Anglophone region of Cameroon near Korup National Park.  He has started over 300 farmers in 10 villages with Inga.  He became very concerned about the illegal hunting that is decimating the wildlife in the Park and is introducing pig farming as an alternative.

Honduras and Kenya Projects

Dr. Guillermo Valle works with rural schools in Honduras.

Marco works with a few farmers in the Cangrejal River basin in Honduras.  Unlike all our other projects Inga has not restored sufficient fertility to these very steep, degraded slopes and we are now investigating remedies affordable to farmers within the organic framework.

In Kenya Pastor Nsandah Premous has started 15 farmers with Inga plots in association with The Kenya Institute of Organic Farming and The Kenya Forestry Research Institute.
