We are training smallholder farmers an alternative way to dispose of their crop waste. A method that is more profitable for them, and important for our climate because it reduces and brings down CO2 levels. Most effective climate action we can do.
Using our method farmers are turning their crop waste into biochar.
Sequestering the biochar does more than bring down our CO2 levels, which scientists say is the most impactful solution to reversing climate change. The biochar enriches their soil, improves water retention, and crops grow bigger, healthier, and more profitable.
So far we have trained over 10,000 smallholder farmers how to make and use biochar. We only have 530 million smallholder farmers more to go!
We have launched our Patreon page for 2 purposes.
- To raise money to continue and expand our training program. We are working with smallholder farmers in Thailand, Malawi, Kenya. Nigeria, Republic of Condo, Ghana, Tanzania. Our trainers go to rural farming communities to train farmers. The cost of training one farmer is $10.
- To raise awareness of the benefits of biochar in our efforts to tackle climate change. To have the biggest, longest lasting impact we need to eliminate open field burning of crop waste globally, and replace it with the environmentally friendly method of charing crop waste.
We believe people are concerned about the growing impact climate change is having, but feel helpless to do anything to change it.
We also believe that given a chance people, like you, would be willing to help if they knew how.
By joining our Patreon community and committing to $10 a month will help spread biochar training and awareness. You can be part of the collective solution. The question you need to ask yourself is if saving our environment with a climate action that works is worth $10 a month?
Patreon is usually used to support individual artists. Why not use it to support the training of individual farmers? We are a nonprofit organization, all membership fees go directly to train farmers.
