The Inga Foundation works with farming families in Central America assisting them with a farming method called Inga alley-cropping which stops slash-and-burn of tropical rainforests. They now farm the same plot indefinitely with a system that survives the worst climate shocks of heat, drought and hurricanes. saves rainforests, captures CO2, and eliminates erosion/mudslides, while providing firewood and organic cash crops. This low-input, debt-free, and bottom-up program regenerates steep, degraded land and is inexpensive to implement.
The Inga is a fast-growing, carbon hungry tree capable of thriving where others have failed. The inga sequesters carbon, guards against erosion and runoff and restores nutrients to the ground that helps nurture cash crops for small stakeholder farmers, preventing slash-and-burn. The Inga Foundation has been building trust and resilience in Honduras and other developing countries, family by family, plot by plot. Inga alley cropping and similar systems rank among one of the top solutions to reverse global warming. - Pete
