This makes small farmers climate protectionists: it starts with school. Plant seedlings are used in five newly created nurseries. And the small farmers who we train in plant cultivation also have to go to school. The training courses are conducted by four Ugandan partner organisations, all of which are united in the LATEK Stay Alliance association. The Stay Alliance coordinates the programm.
In the programme we issue seedlings to the participating farmers. But they don’t just plant trees: they grow fast-growing nuts or vegetables between the rows of trees, especially peanuts and beans. They promise income and sales on the markets soon. In the long term, farmers also cut wood as a renewable raw material.
