We lose trees at a rate of 50 soccer fields per minute as our food systems destroy our ecosystems. Trees for the Future provides farmers in Africa, Latin America, and Southeast Asia with training, seeds, tools and materials to plant trees that protect and bring nutrients back to the soil. $1 provides 10 trees for a farmer to plant $5 Provide 50 trees for a farmer to plant $10 provide 100 trees for a farmers to plant More Information: Most of this degradation occurs in the developing tropics of Africa, Latin America, and South and Southeast Asia where hundreds of millions of chronically-hungry, smallholder farming families use destructive and short-sighted agricultural practices that further degrade their communities trees, soil, water and biodiversity, making them even more likely to migrate and more vulnerable to the climate changes that lie ahead. We train farmers over a four year period to sustainably revitalize their land. The farmers come prepared with their own land and ready to change their family’s life. Farmers plant thousands of trees and grow a variety of fruits and vegetables. Forest Garden farmers gain increases in income and food security, even in the first year.
