Feasibility study grass seed bank project in southern Kenya
This spring we have worked on a great project with our partner Justdiggit. Over the past few years, they have started a number of successful grass seed projects where Maasai women collaboratively grow, harvest and sell grass seed.
Due to the success of these projects, we have been asked to carry out a feasibility study on upscaling, and to develop a suitable upscaling strategy. In practice, upscaling raises some challenges related to markets, forms of cooperation and numerous legal aspects. An update with the results of this study will follow shortly.
During our trip to Kenya, it became very clear why we are in the business of biodiversity:
It has been a very special experience to visit the unspoiled landscape in Southern Kenya and to be able to contribute to new economic perspectives for the local population through which people and nature can live in harmony.
