Farm Staff

NOTDEC’s vision is two-fold — to grow food to feed the many mouths on-site, and provide a stable, growing income to augment the donations from NOTDEC’s UK sponsors and supporters.

So, in recent years the extensive land surrounding the core living areas on the NOTDEC site has been successfully cultivated - producing matoki (cooking plantain bananas), tomatoes, cabbage, peppers, avocado, mango, jack fruit, paw-paw and even honey. Working closely with and under the strategic direction of agriculturalist Jonny Rowland, NOTDEC has also begun to grow high-grade coffee – selling this to a burgeoning local coffee processing facility.
