Our small urban farms in Yangon were never going to grow everything and we always wanted to include other farmers produce in our weekly shares (hello strawberries from Pyin Oo Lwin and pink dragonfruit from Kachin!).
We have since realised that a reliable market is a very valuable thing to farmers in and outside of Yangon. We have been proud to see our network fo farmers increase their production since they started supplying to us.
We hope to offer our network of farmers even more assistance in the future in the way of tools, techniques and trainings but for now, we believe encouragement and a reliable income are the best ways to push for a more organic, regenerative style agriculture in Myanmar.
