Shamba Connect, journey implementing circular supply chain models and regenerative systems
Shamba Connect, a Kenyan social business focusing on seed propagation and urban gardens has transformed its journey through the CirculaRise Accelerator Program by Yunus Environment Hub.
Shamba Connect has adopted and implemented circular supply chain models and regenerative systems through their participation in CirculaRise. They develop urban gardens and train communities and individuals using the gardens on organic farming methods. Following participation in the accelerator Shamba Connect also implemented ways to reduce plastic waste by upcycling it in the production of the gardens. Implementing circular strategies has allowed the social business to have a positive environmental impact, but also through increased cost-savings they were able to create 5 new jobs for the local community.
Shamba Connect is sharing their expertise with fellow farmers, promoting a circular economy approach, and creating a positive environmental impact.
