Coffee is grown in the shade of other trees like Banana and Moringa, a process called intercropping that farmers are learning in Deusa and Waku thanks to the Agro Forestry education programmes there. Coffee seeds are either planted, which grow into coffee trees or sold to traders in Kathmandu, providing a new source of income.
In partnership with EcoHimal Nepal, The Glacier Trust funds climate change adaptation projects in Solukhumbu. Your purchase is a donation to this work. The project in Deusa does not require an infinite number of seeds and seedlings. Once the full amount have been bought all further purchases will be considered as a general donation to The Glacier Trust’s work in Nepal. 100% of your donation will be spent on project work in Nepal.
By spending $200HKD on Coffee, you are donating the equivalent of a quantity of 12 coffee plants.
