New farmer trainings on organic farming

by Phil Hughes July 29, 2014

Mavuno Harvest is growing!

Thanks to our loyal and wonderful customers, Mavuno Harvest is growing – and that’s great news for the farmers whom we work with.  To keep up with demand, we’ve recently begun training more and more farmers in both Uganda and Burkina Faso on organic farming.  The more we grow, the more money goes directly into their communities.  Meet some of our farmers here.  Here’s a few pictures:

A training for local farmers on the methods and benefits of organic farming.

Although the majority of fruit in sub-Saharan Africa is grown organically, the certification process can be challenging.

These farmers now have a market for their amazing fruit!

Heading out to the mango trees for hands on training.
