What is the criteria for sustainable farming?
All projects Steward help fund must follow sustainable farming practices. But what does this actually mean?
In a nutshell, projects must be self-sustaining and environmentally regenerative. This means no use of any herbicides, pesticides or anything else that can harm crops or the environment they grow in. Projects must also not be involved in any lines of operation that require mass industrial scale production, as this would not be a self-sustaining project.
Steward and its network of farmers maintain a commitment to techniques that protect the environment, public health, human communities, and animal welfare.
