Consecutive droughts spell disaster and hunger for Kenya in 2018. Millions are already in need of food aid and the situation is expected to worsen

“In many countries around the world, farmers are the most affected by droughts and they will move. With their cattle, with their children or whatever… And then… they won’t have many places to go. We have only one planet and they can’t go to space.”
- Ovais Sarmad, Deputy Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (2018)
We have the solution
"The Salt Farm Foundation, supported by a number of professors from various Dutch universities, offered a report on saline agriculture to the Minister for Agriculture van Dam on Wednesday 22nd of February. The researchers report that a number of important crops are much more tolerant to salt than assumed hitherto."
‘’This has important implications for our water and agricultural policies in the Netherlands and food security in saline regions across the globe, that until now were depreciated for agricultural use’’ - prof. Peter van Bodegom of the Institute of Environmental Sciences CML, Leiden University (2017)
Our goal is to provide farmers with the means and knowledge of saline agriculture, in an effort to improve food security, with minimal impact on already scarce fresh water supplies. We provide a solution for the adverse consequences of climate change.
A challenging goal, for which we need all the support we can get.

Inspiration day on Texel (Activity for CSR)
Are you a corporate and would like to support us as part of your CSR initiative? An inspiration day with our founder and director Marc van Rijsselberghe can be organized on Texel, the Netherlands. Marc will give you an inspiring presentation on the vision of our organisation, and share his ideas on improving global food security through saline agriculture. During the inspiration day, you can also taste the seasonal salty products. For more information, please contact us at email@example.com.
The proceeds from the Inspiration Day will go to the development and sharing of knowledge for farmers around the world. At this moment we are active on Bonaire to set up a knowledge centre where we can test crops and train farmers to produce local food and reduce their dependence on large-scale imports.
