The precursor was a group of 9 key farmers in Tan Tien and Vinh Xuan villages of Cao Quang commune under the support of the Project: "Strengthening the capacity of small-scale farmers through the agro-forestry in Cao Quang commune, Tuyen Hoa district, Quang Binh province”. The project has been facilitated by the Community Entrepreneurs Development Institute (CENDI) and the Social Policy Ecology Research Institute (SPERI) with the financial support of SODI.

With the thorough advice from members of the MECO-ECOTRA Quang Binh and participation of young farmers of YIELD-AGREE, after nearly 2 years of quiet operation, by every day small and practical lessons which have been absorbed into the hearts of the people so that the members of the group can learn and emulate each other to form a movement throughout the commune. Nowadays, people in Cao Quang all say to each other that: they are members of the forest planting group, native planting group and beekeeping group, etc. That is the joy and motivation for members of the group to be active and engaged together to expand ecological livelihood models. Until now, the members of the group are not only in the initial 2 villages but have spread across the whole commune with 21 members and many other farmers voluntarily want to join.

In order to expand agro-forestry activities in the commune in the direction of ensuring ecological environment and sustainable household economic development, the group members agreed to establish their cooperative. Accordingly, Cao Quang Agro-Forestry and Ecological Service Cooperative (Cao Quang Cooperative) was officially born on April 23, 2019.
