After completing his studies, Ugyen Tshering wanted to start an enterprise that was both meaningful and lucrative. He founded Greener Lyfe Farm in 2019 to start farming in an innovative way. However, before he could even start, the Covid-19 pandemic struck and he could not launch. With funding support from the Loden-Bhutan Foundation Covid-19 Response Grants, and as part of Greener Lyfe Farm , Ugyen will start ‘Your Food Basket’ – a direct logistic system that will bring fresh, organic produce from farm to plate using technology and innovation and a community supported agriculture model. He aims to create a food supply chain that protects the farmers.
This project is funded through the Loden-Bhutan Foundation Covid-19 Response Grants, with the generous support of the American people through the U.S. Agency for International Development in partnership with the Bhutan Foundation.
