Support sustainable agriculture and reforestation projects in the area around Trinidad, Honduras

Roy Lara, TCP project director based in Trinidad, works tirelessly to achieve TCP's twin goals as follows:
Tree Conservation/Reforestation: Roy works with students, families and communities on tree planting and protection projects that help preserve and restore local forests. Participants learn to appreciate how the forest cover is essential to protecting the natural water supply, preserving soil quality, and preventing erosion.
Sustainable Agriculture Projects: Roy teaches peasant farmers sustainable, organic farming techniques that involve crop rotation on single plots; organic fertilizers, native seed varieties, and terracing – techniques that are inexpensive and highly effective.

The initial focus is on subsistence farming. Later, farmers learn to market their produce for profit. As a result, families move from "slash-and-burn" agriculture to more sustainable, environmentally-responsible farming.

1. Teach small communities how to use organic farming methods to feed their families.

2. Involve local students and communities in tree planting and protection projects that help preserve and restore the forests.
