The Biointensive Method is designed to grow the greatest amount of food possible per square meter. Because of deep soil preparation, biointensive gardens use less water and continually improve soil quality through composting. Families are able to improve nutrition and food security by growing biointensive gardens, and they can also generate income by selling part of their production.
We work with families and schools in rural and urban communities to develop biointensive gardens that produce fresh organic produce throughout the year. This contributes to food security and also promotes responsible stewardship of the natural resources in each community. Growers are trained by our staff and form part of a national network or biointensive farmers, where they share experiences and resources.
