In 2012, 280 farmers received 100 Robusta coffee seedlings

The farmers were taught how to prepare their land, plant and care for the coffee.  This is the beginning of the ongoing story of our Robusta Coffee pilot project to see if coffee grows well in the challenging environment of northern Uganda. 

We are also working with farmers in the West Nile region (about 3 hours away!) where they are growing Arabica.  

 

These farmers are also beneficiaries of Seeds for Development and we sell their coffee in the UK to raise funds for our projects.  You can read more about them here

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The farmers share their excitement when the first coffee seedlings arrived.
