Trees for the Future

At the edge of a growing forest garden in Brazil, Gliricidia and Moringa trees help fix nitrogen in the soil while acting as a windbreak. In this case, they’re also part of a living fence that keeps cattle away from the growing crops. Techniques like these help local farmers greatly increase crop yield — and income — without exhausting the land.
