2023: We are very grateful for all our supporters who made it happen that we have now an experimental farm of 3 ha
AND………….. our first new farmer Avelino Renato can start his farm in Milange with 3 ha!!
Harmonergy.nl is a Dutch Foundation that supports people in Mozambique with regenerative agroforestry
(Harmonergy Infographic in Dutch)
A successful type of regenerative Agroforestry is Syntropic Farming
Regenerative Agroforestry is a natural way of food and raw material production. It improves the soil quality and goes a step further then sustainability. It is a poly-crop planting system that is closer to nature’s original plan. Mono-crop planting systems in regular farming need more water, fertilizer and chemicals, this creates costs that makes small farmers dependent.
Syntropic Farming is designed by Ernst Götsch in Brazil. It mimics nature with ecological succession and stratification and respects it as an intelligent system. Yield and income can increase for the one who adapt to it.

The project area is between Maputo and the South African border. It is a small stretch of the 2400 kilometres long Mozambican coastline. People there live in close proximity to a Wild Life Park, where tourism and infrastructure are developing. Malaria is under control. An important part of the area is the ‘Maputo Elephant Park’. The Peace Park Foundation created a corridor there with the ‘Tembe Elephant Park’ in South Africa. In this area many forces play a role in relation to nature conservation, development, poverty reduction and the interest of people.

A journey towards living in harmony with nature
Instead of consuming land we change very poor soil into fertile soil and regenerate land for food production in a healthy way. Help us make this happen on a larger scale:

Dank je! Het gaat ons lukken 🙂
You have inspired many people here in the Netherlands, so please keep up the amazing work!!! We can’t wait to visit the project in Mozambique itself.
Hello what a great initiative! I am also involved in the spreading of syntropic agroforestry in countries like, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Zambia and recently Zimbabwe very close to the border of Mozambique. I would love to be updated about this project and maybe we could exchange experiences. Btw I am a Dutch citizen from Curaçao but spending most of my time in Eastern Africa
Hi Roland. Far to late with my reaction but still very interested to get in touch. We had a meeting online with a group, but I love to get in contact with you personaly. All the best!
