Moving from activism to Social Business: Stay Green’s agroforestry demonstration field in Mubende

When climate activism and social business come together.

As a young participatory network of climate activists, One World Tree Planting believes in building green local economies to create climate resilience and preserve biodiversity. Local social business development is key to make projects financially sustainable.

One of our members, Ronald Mutabazi, founder of the community based organisation Stay Green, is working as climate activist since 2013 launching awareness campaigns and planting trees with the school kids of the Mubende district. In the past years Stay Green managed to plant over 18.000 seedlings of native tree varieties on public domains, school properties and local farmer’s fields.

As Ronald understands the need of income generating activities to help transition farmers towards climate-smart agroforestry, Stay Green established a “community managed” organic banana plantation and set up different bee hives for honey production.

To further develop their mission Stay Green is planting a two acres demonstration farm on which they will educate farmers on agroforestry, biodiversity preservation and organic farming. This site will be used as a training site for climate-smart agriculture and eco-tourism. Income generated from these activities will be used to grow the farm, make the operations sustainable and further train local smallholder farmers.
