The Kolega Vanilla program is run in partnership with the Edmund Rice Foundation and teaches farmers critical skills in the agriculture of Vanilla.
Compared to coffee, Vanilla is a very high value crop, and a perfect companion to coffee with a high value harvest at a different time of the year.

TTN volunteers work with locals to teach farmers essential skills around pollination, composting and mulching. This is a very exciting new initiative. Keep up with vanilla news on our TTN Facebook site for photos of wonderful progress up in the mountains.
