Who we are

Our constitution

We aim to support work on projects whose objective is to relieve poverty among subsistence farmers in the humid tropics, and protect or improve the environment in rainforest or former rainforest areas. In particular, we aim to do that by promoting the Inga alley cropping technique.

The Trust



Antony Melville MSc, CHAIRMAN

Antony Melville

Antony Melville is a linguist by background but also a keen botanist and naturalist. He spent 25 years travelling the world selling books and translation rights for publishers, latterly as International Sales Director at Dorling Kindersley; thus learning enough Spanish to aid in communication talking to farmers about their use of Inga alley cropping in Honduras. He has recently completed an MSc in Environmental Technology at Imperial College.



Dr.  Tiiu-Imbi Miller, Secretary

Tiiu-Imbi Miller

Tiiu has a keen interest in environmental issues and has previously been instrumental in running a children's club in aid of saving rainforests. Tiiu has a passion for science and she applies that background to understanding the scientific issues relevant to rainforests and alley cropping. Outside the charity she is now retired, owning and running a small craft business.



Dr. Patrick Miller, Treasurer

Patrick Miller

Patrick has supported many environmental and human rights charities. He is a retired academic who has a degree in chemistry and psychology. He has an interest in statistics and this was deemed to fit him for the post of treasurer of Rainforest Saver. Outside the chartiy his chief hobbies are gardening and chess.




Paul Messing

Paul had his environmentalist epiphany when, as a teenager in the '60s, he spent some time burning a diseased elm and realised how fast the world was consuming oxygen and wood and how it could keep up absorbing the carbon dioxide it created.  Environmental news generally depressed him until he heard about Inga cropping and felt that this was the best solution for providing food for the jungle slashers rather than just depriving them of their liveliihood.  Paul has a degree in Aeronautical Engineering and an MBA (both from Imperial College), worked latterly in Information technology but has been retired (very early) for many a year




Sally Marullo

For most of my professional life I worked as a researcher, journalist and editor, latterly for Thomson Reuters, specialising in international labour markets, recruitment and employment law. Alongside that, I have been active in my local inner city community helping to promote activities and engagement particularly among older citizens who are often marginalised by change. As a lifelong internationalist and keen walker, I have become increasingly concerned about the environment, and its links with poverty and food security.
