Supporting farmers to transition to regenerative agriculture and productive food forests
2023 SEED Climate Adaptation Award Sustainable Agriculture Malawi

GGD’s innovative approach combines agroecological and business expertise to increase agricultural productivity, restore landscapes, and generate income opportunities. The company serves farmers, donor projects, and carbon investors, providing services like smallholder agroforestry packages, land restoration, and agroforestry supplies.

Eco-Inclusive Impacts

GGD contributes to climate adaptation through soil rehabilitation, flood and erosion control, carbon capture, and boosting biodiversity. We promote resilient and restored landscapes, develop regenerative agriculture practices, and offer carbon credits to finance large-scale afforestation and climate resilience projects.

GGD supports farmers to monetise their crops and increase their income through agroforestry practices, offering them access to new offtake markets. The company also provides training and seedlings to farmers. The enterprise contributes to reforestation by planting 50,000 trees, capturing 3,000 tonnes of CO2 (2023), and protecting areas from severe weather conditions through watershed management solutions.
