The fruit, also known as Yacon, is not only in high demand abroad due to its medicinal value for the patients with diabetes but also is suitable to cultivate in areas at an altitude of above 1,500 metres from the sea level, which makes it perfect to grow in Deusa.
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 $150HKD on Ground Apples, you are donating the equivalent of the cost of purchasing Ground Apple seeds.
