“We are working with a community in Chitwan, Nepal where we are planting hundreds of bamboo along a river bed. In order to avoid monoculture, we are also planting high value crops like lemongrass, ginger, lentil, chamomile etc. Our plan is to add value to these plants, for example by building schools with local resources, or extracting lemongrass oil so that we can create a unique village that demonstrates the world the best local use of natural resources.”
