Green Releaf is raising resources for scaling its permaculture solutions after prototyping them for the last 3 years to support 300 farmers from Tiwi, Albay after being impacted by Supertyphoon Goni and Vamco in November 2020. In partnership with the Sustainable Agriculture program of the Diocese of Legazpi, we are helping in raising funds for: a) Open pollinated and organic seeds b) Repair of farm tools and equipment c) Permaculture training and materials (print outs and videos) for sharing.

OUR CHALLENGE

Super typhoon Goni (Rolly) and Typhoon Vamco (Ullyesses) arrived in the Philippines one after the other in November 2020 leaving a trail of destruction along the way. Several farm structures and materials have been damaged for 3 farmer associations of the local government of Tiwi, Albay supported by the sustainable agriculture program of the Diocese of Legazpi Given that there will be more typhoons that may come, more adaptive and resilient methods and designs through permaculture is our additional support.

OUR GOAL

The funds will support the recovery of food security and economic needs of 300 farmers and their families. Repair of farm structures such vermiculture bins, mushroom houses, farmer's training hall, and their organic trading post are some of the main outputs of this fundraiser. This will be complemented with training for climate resilient farming using permaculture and regenerative agriculture. 

 

POTENTIAL LONG-TERM IMPACT

Our project aims to support farmers to design better farming systems and set up adaptive to the ecosystem's climate vulnerability as model training sites for replicating best practices in climate resilient and adaptive farming methods.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
