Our Plan for 2030

ONE BILLION TREES

Why 1 billion trees?

There is a critical need to restore our ecosystems to secure the future of the planet and everyone on it…

…and time is running out. Farmland is one of our most precious ecosystems that not only feed the world but also directly impact the health of our planet and the communities they are in.

Land use is the leading cause of the climate crisis, but sustainable agriculture can reverse the damage and protect people and landscapes long term and big goals like this are essential to making that happen.

In order to ensure our planet and people thrive, we know the solution has to include a sustainable and equitable food system, and this starts with restoring farmlands that embrace trees instead of clearing them.

For communities

In communities

By communities

How will we achieve this goal?

For communities, in communities, by communities. It is essential that local communities are involved in sustainable and healthy change for them and our planet. Over the next decade, we will use our training program to plant 1 billion trees through Forest Garden approach and other strategic planting initiatives. We will cultivate more of our projects across the regions we currently serve, collaborate with other on-the-ground organizations, and train graduate farmers from our program to pass their knowledge and training to their community members.

What we do in the next ten years will make all the difference for people and the planet and we must work together to make lasting change happen.
