WHY: Each graduating farmer has spent the last four years transforming one-acre portions of their farmland into thriving agroforestry systems called Forest Gardens. Their Forest Gardens are home to approximately 2,500 – 4,000 trees and support these farmers and their families with increased food production and resource crops year-round. The Forest Gardens also support healthier ecosystems and enhance carbon stocks. The graduation ceremonies celebrate the farmers’ hard work, achievements and success in the program.
