We work through a model of community engagement, in partnership with an eager grassroots team aware of the existing culture and way of life of the people we target


Favoured for its creamy texture, rich flavor, and high nutritional value, avocados have become a staple in the Kenyan landscape, and across the globe. Due to the rise of ‘health conscious’ eating and holistic improvement, it’s little wonder the demand for avocados has surged in recent years

Healthy Macadamia Tree


The macadamia nut, from the macadamia tree, native to Australia, but now also widely grown in Kenya, is a versatile and highly prized commodity from which local farmers are making a good living.


Honey is a popular commodity loved for its rich, sweet taste, numerous health benefits and versatility in use.

Happy Coffee Farmer


It’s no secret coffee is an invaluable commodity to the global market, often present in numerous households as a staple beverage.  Often described as bright, fruity, and complex, with notes of blackcurrant, citrus, and floral undertones, Kenyan coffee is a huge contributor to Kenya’s GDP and economic stability.


The agricultural revolution saw the endless cutting of forests, exploitation of water resources and the neglect of wildlife. Doing so has led us to today’s climate change emergency, characterized by an unstable climate unable to support any agricultural efforts put forth by our farmers.

Biochar seems to be a buzzword making the rounds among the climate change landscape. However, its validity and importance can not be denied or ignored. Used in centuries past for farm productivity, biochar today presents an enviable quality in sequestering carbon. 


The Moringa value chain in Kenya is a dynamic and growing sector that offers numerous opportunities for economic development and improved nutrition. Moringa, often referred to as the “drumstick tree” or “miracle tree,” is known for its nutritional value and wide-ranging health benefits.

Rice Value Chain


In the fertile heartlands of Mwea, Ahero, and West Kano, a community of dedicated farmers tends to the golden fields of rice. Across more than 180,000 hectares, they employ traditional rain-fed methods and modern irrigation techniques to nurture this staple crop.

Plastics Recycling and Regeneration

Aimed at reducing marine litter and assisting in the development of a circular economy, vast amounts of single-use plastics (such as cutlery, straws, cotton bud sticks, etc.,) were banned in an EU directive, of 1021, on single-use plastics came into effect. The directive lays out a number of measures aimed at reducing the amount of single-use plastics and increasing the share of plastic that is recycled that must be met by 2030
