Haven't backed any projects yet! 

On Sunday it will be National Peanut Butter day in America! Peanuts are an important protein and cash crop for farmers in PNG, people grow them in Sololo, which is a remote village Cool Earth partners with. Growing peanuts improves soil fertility, so they are often grown in rotation between other food crops. This lets gardens be used a bit longer, reducing clearing for new gardens. It also means the soil nutrient levels are able to support forest regeneration when the garden is left fallow. I will be working with farmers to investigate how their crops and methods are integral part of the forest ecosystem cycle. I will also be eating some peanuts and other wonderful produce from traditional, low-impact forest gardens!
