The Usambara Mountains is a fertile area were almost all vegetables are growing. The only problem is that everybody is growing the same which is ready at the same time and
it needs chemicals to keep the deceases out.
This project tries to get more variety with more value. In the first place MamboViewPoint lodge will be provided so there is no need anymore to get the vegetables from far. Later also can be extended to markets.
