Agroecology & Income generation
This program aims to implement regenerative agriculture, more specifically, organic agroforestry models with small to medium landowners in the state of Bahia and São Paulo, Brazil. The beneficiaries are family farmers with limited access to capital, and technical assistance, that have historically fought for land access. Forest restoration will be conducted mainly in riparian areas, and agroforestry systems models are highly diversified and include native trees and emblematic products such as cocoa, coffee, medicinals, and threatened species such as Juçara (Euterpe edulis).
