SHI is improving lives and ecosystems in diverse regions of Central America through multi-year technical assistance for smallholder farmers to transition to agroecology practices. Since 1997, SHI has partnered with over 3,000 farming families to regenerate 26,000 acres of degraded land and planted over 4 million trees. Through SHI's multi-year program, farming families implement regenerative agriculture practices such as agroforestry, intercropping, soil restoration, and integrated pest management, drawing down carbon out of the atmosphere, growing a good standard of living and feeding people sustainably.
SHI's mission is to work together to create a just and sustainable world through transformative farmer training that nourishes communities and the Earth.
SHI has proven success in agro-ecology extension, having partnered with farming families in Central America for over 25 years in a variety of climates, geographies, and cultures. Now is the time for us to scale up the impact of our programs to turn the tides of food insecurity and environmental degradation. Our scaling vision is to partner with others to help a million smallholders regenerate 8 million acres of land including the planting of a billion trees by 2030.
