The scotch bonnet pepper seed farm – save a farmer’s greenhouse by helping him grow pepper seedlings

We have developed Jamaica’s first organic, non-GMO scotch bonnet pepper seed bank in Santa Cruz, St. Elizabeth, Jamaica. This will be the indigenous “cup and saucer” scotch bonnet pepper, which is the pepper of choice locally and internationally amongst Jamaicans. Seed banks will play an important role in accessing organic seeds to be planted on the island in the near future. All net proceeds from the sales will go back into our Farmers Fund to help more distressed farmers.

The project costs $15,000 and is already 75% funded. Any additional funds raised will be used to pay workforce to (a) transplant the seedlings from the greenhouse into the ground and (b) improve irrigation of in the field.

Please support this project.
