FARM-Africa works with farmers, herders and forest communities in eastern Africa. Communities in the Nou Forest, Tanzania, depend entirely on the forest for survival, often cutting down trees to burn for firewood or to make space for crops.
FARM-Africa has been helping people to explore new ways to earn a living which protect rather than destroy the forest. With their help, the long term participatory forest management approach has enabled community members to increase their income through improved management of resources.
By providing bee hives and training to families in the Nou Forest, FARM-Africa is giving the people of Nou Forest an alternative, sustainable way to survive without damaging their environment. The honey harvested is an excellent food source, and can be sold at markets and used for medicine too.
