About the Project
The Kaffrine 3 area was heavily forested in the past, however, today the land is degraded. The project area is right next to a community forest, where tree-cutting is prohibited, so farmers need ways to sustain their livelihoods. The gardens in this project will have all the benefits typically associated with a Forest Garden, while simultaneously guaranteeing the protection of the local forest. Differences between this project and other TREES Kaffrine projects include being closer to the Gambia border and higher rainfall totals.

Benefits for Farmers
In addition to year-round family support, the sale of fruits and vegetables has allowed farmers to take on some family expenses such as school expenses, health, and clothing. Also, the forest garden limits the rural exodus and immigration of rural youth to Europe.
The forest garden project shortens or removes the lean season and gives activities to farmers who do not have constant work during the dry season.
