Agriculture

Small-scale farmers in Latin America provide essential food supplies for the region’s growing population. Yet many farmers need training in sustainable farming and animal health practices in order to increase production and generate an income sufficient to support their families. Our partners help rural families improve their livelihoods and conserve natural resources. Their programs combine environmental education and protection with improved farming techniques. Programs include:

• Sustainable farming practices
• Water conservation and management
• Use of solar energy for greenhouses and homes
• Crop rotation
• Animal husbandry
