Sustainable agriculture and local food production are key themes for the MAPF

Projects we have supported in this area include: 

  • A test kitchen for farmers to develop a secondary livelihood through using the bi products from their main crops, to make jams, chutneys, tarts etc.
  • The substitution of mulching plastics used in agriculture, with a bioplastic made from potato starch
  • A ‘seed bank’ focussed on identifying the local crops best adapted to current weather weather conditions and soil characteristics.
  • The regeneration of 2000 non-productive Carob trees.
