BRING BACK TO LIFE NEGLECTED OLD GROVES
How we support local farmers
We research and locate groves that require attention and struggling small-scale farmers. Through crowdfarming and the adoption of trees, we economically support the maintenance of the grove.
We remind them of the need to preserve the natural environment and the requirements for farms to develop in conjunction with the local ecology.
We reward and buy the great quality products and include them in our retrεεve boxes acquired through the adoption. At the same time, we give people around the world the possibility to get to know those products and open new markets for small-scale farmers.
