Roots Origin: Intango Washing Station

Plant Nursery

In 2019, the Intango washing station in Karongi, Rwanda, received a Seeds grant to begin a plant nursery. The coffee and shade trees grown there will be distributed to the farmers in nearby communities who process their coffee cherries at the washing station

Coffee trees in this region are often old and less productive. Supported with training in best agronomic practices, farmers will eventually begin to renovate their plots in the hopes of not only increasing quality but yields as well.
