The Inga Foundation

The Inga Foundation has worked with farming communities in Honduras since 2012 to halt the practice of slash and burn agriculture through a sustainable, organic and low cost alternative: Inga alley-cropping. It has been extending the “Guama Model” to farmer groups and helps each family through the 2-3 year period of establishment.

Today, IF has a demo farm and is supporting around 240 families, in various stages of adopting the Guama Model. The families’ plots and the demo farm are becoming a model of sustainable rural livelihoods and the model is being written into the Honduran Government’s strategic wet zone plan.
