News from Pemba

The first travel of the year to Pemba took place in March. There has been some change because seven farmers from the village of Matuuni founded a new cooperative named “Juhudi Organic Spice”. To date, they were members of “Pemba Hygienic Society”. The objective of the foundation is to strengthen the cooperation between the farmers in terms of growing and processing their spices. The farmers from Bwagamoyo will continue their cooperation as “Pemba Hygienic Society”.

Furthermore we checked some vanilla plants together with the farmers. The beans are already of remarkable size and make promise towards a good harvest in May and June.IMG-20160307-WA0000
