We haven't chosen to plant cashew trees by accident but rather because they have a number of advantages.
The image below is of trees donated by sponsors 4 years ago comprising part of a small scale cashew farm in Bore of the type we support.
- They are very fast growing which means they absorb carbon quickly.
- They yield a high-protein crop of nuts after as little as 3 years which can either be eaten or sold for cash.
- They are drought resistant which is critical given the way the climate is changing in sub-Saharan Africa
