Gabriël, Michel and three other farmers are planting foodforrests in this region. For African farmers this way of agriculture is more natural and the farmers have more connection with it, then the farmers in Holland. We in Holland, grow in a more industrial way. The tropical climate invites more to grow crops in different layers, because it gives more protection for the sun. Plants grow more explosive than in our climate. We discovered, that there is a group of farmers in West Carmeroon, who are also planting foodforrests. In Africa the industrial agriculture is growing too. It is good to find other ways, where nature and food go together.
We feel connected with these farmers. We will keep following them and give them support.
