Permalink Syntropic Coffee Farming Promotes Ecosystem Health

A feature posted on Sprudge highlights syntropic coffee farmers in Brazil who are growing coffee as part of a multi-storied agricultural system of agroforestry, rather than as a monoculture. On these farms, the sub-shrub coffee gains nutrients from the soil that are contributed by other plants, including raspberries, manioc, corn, mambaça, numerous flowers, beans, jacarandá, cedar, lemon, palm trees, guava, and other native species. These plants provide a range of ecosystem services and additional income for growers.
