Andre Leu: Regenerative Organic Agriculture
Nourishes the World
The mission of Pro-Organic Belize is to
educate, inspire, and encourage farmers
regarding the benefits and opportunities of
a sustainable pro-organic system of
agriculture that regenerates the soil, and
to educate consumers on the health benefits
of pesticide-free produce.
Objectives and Goals:
Through education and supportive
services, we help farmers and consumers
understand the benefits and opportunities
in growing and consuming organically grown
food -- toward the essential shift in
agriculture from using toxic chemicals
that compromise the integrity of the
environment, our food, our water, our
soil, and our health -- to natural more
cost-effective agricultural practices that
promote well-being and sustainability.
Belize Pesticide-Free Consumers Group In response to
many people now wanting to buy safer
produce, POB has organized a
pesticide-free consumers group, which
started operating in the San Ignacio
area in October 2016. Due to its
success, membership opened to
individuals, families and businesses in
the Belmopan area as well. If you wish
to participate, send an email email@example.com
requesting to receive our
pesticide-free farmer's harvest
lists emailed to you each week. Click here
for more details on how to
purchase safer, cleaner, healthier
produce to feed your family.
Dr. Stephanie Seneff
other Belizean organizations concerned
about the environment and food
safety, we sponsored a project to
bring globally recognized authority
Dr. Stephani Seneff to Belize in
April 2017. She testified before the
Pesticide Control Board and spoke to
farmers and the public about the
dangers of using glyphosate on
farmland. It is our intention to
reveal the truth about the
consequences to the environment and
our health toward achieving a ban on
glyphosate. Visit the ban-glyphosate
website for articles, information,
videos, and podcasts toward
understanding this grave threat.
many other countries, Belize has not
yet implemented a regular program to
test for toxic residues left on fruits
& vegetables, locally grown or
the WTO (World Trade Org.), since we
do not require testing for our own
locally grown produce, imported
produce coming from other countries
is exempt from testing. We are
working to foster a plan toward
testing food to insure it is clean
and safe to consume.
