Meet Sri Lanka’s evangelists for chemical-free tea farming.

On behalf of the Rainforest Alliance, they are training tea estate workers and smallholder farmers to adopt simple, time-tested methods that safeguard soil health and water quality and protect workers from dangerous chemical exposure. The end result: higher crop yields, cleaner water, and less pressure to expand cropland into the virgin rainforest nearby.
