  • SHI encourages all participants to include as many trees as possible in their land-use plans. Families like this Mayan family in Belize learn to grow their own seedlings for transplanting onto their farms.
  • Manure from the chickens and other animals is used for compost or fed through a biogas digester that uses anaerobic decomposition to create methane gas. The effluent from the biogas digester is also a powerful liquid, organic fertilizer.
