The Process



Bamboo can be planted as a natural greenhouse and produce a micro climate. Its leaves improve soil composition, its roots control erosion and regulate water levels; its branches form a shade canopy that reduce temperature levels. Bamboo as a natural greenhouse has the potential to drastically increase agricultural yields and quality of crops and at the same time make them more climate resilient.

Sustainable bamboo growth depends on farmers being profitable, market resilient and climate SMART. 

Because of the particular harvesting method of bamboo, the positive elements of the bamboo greenhouse remain while bamboo poles can be harvested for additional revenue.


Carbon Credits

Carbon credits used to fund the setup of plantations and the transition from traditional agriculture to bamboo agroforestry.

Income of farmers will increase 3x while farmers become climate SMART and market resilient.

Coffee model

Stabilize riverbeds and mountain slopes, regenerate degraded lands & contribute to conservation efforts.
