Plant trees and change lives.
Trees for the Future (TREES) trains communities on sustainable land use so that they can grow vibrant economies, thriving food systems, and a healthier planet.
Hunger, poverty, and environmental decay
Around the world, landscapes are deteriorating and ecosystems are collapsing. The farming families that rely on the land to survive are trapped in cycles of hunger and poverty.
Unsustainable land use
Deforestation, soil degradation, and biodiversity loss are all tied to our global food system. In an effort to grow enough food to eat and sell, farmers are encouraged to clear their land of trees and native species. This unsustainable approach is harming people and the planet.
The Forest Garden Solution
Equipping farmers with tools and knowledge
There is no one-size-fits-all solution to the challenges we face. Tree planting alone will not solve hunger, poverty, or the climate crisis. By training farmers in the Forest Garden Approach, we provide families with the tools and training they need to ensure they can thrive on their land longterm.
Every Forest Garden is made possible by supporters like you
Farmers have the power, we have the training, you are the key. Through trees, tools, and training, we’ve been able to make a big impact… and it’s all thanks to our incredible supporter community.
TREES confronts hunger, poverty, and environmental degradation by serving the people at the heart of our global food systems: farmers and their families.Learn More
