Small farming poverty is a worldwide epidemic. The Valley Foundation is dedicated to restoring and preserving the environment while sustaining mankind. We are focused on providing food security and improving profitability for the 2.5 billion small scale farmers living in poverty worldwide.
Permaculture is a sustainable, organic agriculture method with three main principles: Care for the Earth, Care for People, and Care for Surplus Production. The Permaculture method lessens monetary investment over time, with the goal of creating a system that provides for its own sustainability. Permaculture provides abundant ecological habitat, nutritious food and generates a diversity of crops less susceptible to changing weather patterns. A mature permaculture system produces crops and income year-round. With better water utilization, improved soil conditions, and drought resistant crops, it is an ideal system for the rural subsistence farmers subject to global industrialized agriculture and commodity crops.
Poverty is the greatest destructive force on the planet. You can help end small farmer poverty. With your financial support, the Valley Foundation can continue developing the Valley Park Agroecology Center, create a new learning center in Uganda, expand the community driven restoration agriculture corridor in Uganda, host Permaculture seminars in Tanzania, and most importantly, support local schools in the Tulsa area.
Partner with us to help end farming poverty and help teach families and their children how to create a sustainable future.
