Our Mission -To provide sustainable and organic agriculture education and consultation that empowers small farmers to expand crop production in Africa.
We help small-scale farmers improve soil fertility, cut down on their use of commercial fertilizer and pesticides, and form small business groups to pool labor, resources and produce for more efficient local marketing. During the past four years, Go Organic Africa has implemented a broad range of training programs to address the varied needs of the small-scale farming sector.
Agro forestry is a method of planting crops and trees together on the same plot of land.
By understanding how forests grow and sustain themselves without human intervention, we can learn from Nature, copy the systems and patterns to model our own forests — ones filled with trees and plants that produce food we can eat. We can design and construct the most sustainable food production systems possible; perfected, refined and cared for by Mother Nature herself.
A forest takes care of itself by shedding leaves, building mulch and organic manure, with the tree’s roots holding water in the soil and preventing erosion.
Planting trees is a good way to alleviate the risks of a changing climate i.e preventing soil erosion and keeping water in the ground.
Food Forests are life
From these basic facts, it should be evident that forests themselves are synonymous with life, biodiversity and fertility. Where life gathers, complex and mutually beneficial relationships are created between organisms; natural harmonious communities form, and life forms multiply and proliferate.
