sustainable agriculture

permaculture, medicinal plants

Sustainable agriculture in the case of Badigue is based on principles of permaculture. Beside providing the food for visitors, staff and collaborators of the project a special section is dedicated to medicinal plants (with the emphasis on malaria treatment, but also other topical diseases in the region). Mainly local plants are used. Foreign species are implemented with the agreement with local experts. For educational purposes all the plants are tagged with name and use signs, both in english and kriol. Garden farm will also be the place of artistic intervention (with the emphasis on designing unique garden utilities) which transforms it into enjoyable working and relaxing environment.
