The Amazon region has a rich diversity of regional fruits, but the agronomic potential
of the entire state still needs a lot of development.
We believe it very essential to develop sustainable agriculture techniques in harmony
with natural cycles, cooperating with nature instead of destroying. For this reason
we desire to apply and foster the use of organic agriculture in the state of Amazonas.
We work with materials coming from nature, and giving those materials back to nature,
and are so closing the natural cycle that God has created.
We have in mind the training of Educators, people who can teach in the communities
how to improve their yield without causing negative impacts on the environment, using
as a model our own educational garden, being implemented at this moment.
We want to combine fruit and vegetable production with the bee cultures of various
kinds. We use all organic matter for compost production, and we intend to produce
humus with rainworm cultures.
Many farmers are getting discouraged because of long transport time on the river
and lack of infrastructure in order to get their produce to the market. Most of the
farmers are located along the various communities along the shorelines of the Amazon
rivers. The majority of those communities can be reached only by boat, and in the
dry season access to many communities is greatly limited. We intend to promote not
only better production techniques, but search also for local processing options and
solutions for the logistical challenges.
We are searching for partnerships that allow for economical growth of the local farmers
as well as our project. We intend that the growth can take place equally on both
sides. Any benefits of the production will be though 100% applied in educational
and welfare projects of the Foundation.
We started a pilot project with the help of ADRA for fruit drying, planning to develop
various products to process the dried products in various forms.
