As the production of vanilla is growing in Uganda, the vanilla farmers are contributing to conservation through the protection of the trees who shade their vanilla vines. Every vanilla flower has to be hand-pollinated by the farmers to produce a vanilla pod. Have a walk around Kipling and meet vanilla farmers with Enimiro Uganda, an agro-company which supports farmers in producing quality products sustainably.
