We aren’t just planting trees.
We’re changing lives through regenerative agriculture.

Planning

Farmers learn to plan for their family’s future by discovering how planting 4,000 trees with food crops will help them make more money, grow more food and build a sustainable future.

Stabilization

Farmers learn to plant rows of nitrogen fixing trees in and along borders of their degraded land to protect the field from pests and stop erosion.

Diversification

Farmers learn to plant over 12 types of fruit trees and vegetables to meet market opportunities and the nutritional needs of their families.

Benefits

Forest Gardens give families: Significant increases in income, more paydays, more nutritious food to eat, security from risks related to markets, pests, and weather extremes, free alternatives to pesticides and fertilizers, feed for livestock, and fuel wood to cook.

“Before my Forest Garden, all of my family had to leave to find work. Now they work here! “

"I get more from my two acre Forest Garden than I could get from six acres of peanut crop. My sons have a future now, and as I age, trees will continue to feed my family."
Mate Mbaye

When people learn how to give back to the land, the land gives back to them.

The Forest Garden Program is a sustainable agriculture practice where farmers plant a specific variety of crops and trees in phases over a four-year period.
