Our Approach

The big picture

Vision

A world where food diversity is restored by creating and maintaining landscapes that produce diverse food.

Mission

Enabling people to diversify the food that they eat by growing their own food or consuming from nearby food sources.

Philosophy

Changing the way we produce and eat our  food can solve a lot of the pressing problems of our contemporary world.

Our work

What?​

We are working to restore food diversity by creating spaces that will grow diverse food.

Why?​

The food diversity of our planet is depleting very fast. This is leading to: i) food and nutrition insecurity, ii) biodiversity loss.

How?

By training individuals/communities to grow diverse food in any type of space that is available to them.

The idea behind the name

The meaning

bon in Bengali (our mother tongue ) means forest. Forest reminds us of the diversity and interconnectedness of lives.

The intention

bon wants to transform any available spaces for growing food into a forest-like system by introducing native varieties of trees and plants. No life in a forest works in isolation but in cooperation and healthy competition. Similar to that bon wants to create and be part of a strong and resilient network that is working for the common goal of biodiversity restoration.
