Up in Smoke: Sun 9 Feb, 18:30 Darwen Library Theatre – free entry

Up in Smoke

Up in Smoke follows Mike Hands, as he works to connect with and convince local farmers to make the leap from slash and burn to Inga alley cropping, and his struggle to bring the issue of slash and burn farming to the forefront of ecological thinking.
The Inga Foundation has come a long way since the film was completed. We have had some important successes and now have more projects, more funding and, crucially, far more farmers involved and practicing alley cropping.
But this is just the start, we still have a long way to go. Alley cropping has the potential to transform the lives of slash and burn farmers across the tropics. We are working hard to realise that potential and are making significant progress, however we still face some key obstacles, especially in terms of funding.
