Greencare Eco Solutions

Eco-Innovation at its best! Making organic fertiliser from biodegradable waste
2023 SEED Climate Adaptation Award Sustainable Agriculture Zambia

Greencare Eco Solution’s Umufundo Organic Granular Fertiliser is a special blend of organic matter sourced from bio-degradable wastes. This fertiliser has a wide nutrient base and acts as a soil conditioner as well because it restores and remediates soil profiles and the biodiversity within the soil.

The fertilisers are sold at a very low price to provide an alternative to expensive chemical fertilisers. Therefore, it makes its products and services available to poor and vulnerable groups.
