Michael has been involved with FOAG since the early 90s, and has visited Uganda as part of the annual project monitoring visit many times. His particular interest is sustainable agriculture, having worked in India and Nigeria on rural development projects directed at soil conservation. He is the coordinator for the Evergreen Agriculture project with EADEN as implementing partner; the project which combines many of Michael’s concerns including agroforestry and alley cropping, soil fertility enhancement, and sustainability. He is also assisting with the technical and business planning for the farms associated with the four Centres. Michael, with his wife Chrissy, are kept more than busy running a fruit farm near Newent in Gloucestershire.
