Trees for the Future

This farmer in Brazil is next to a row of Moringa trees just transplanted from a tree nursery, the first step in creating a forest garden. Our projects are frequently on land that’s been over-farmed in the past, often to grow a single cash crop to sell overseas, leaving behind soil whose nutrients are exhausted. Trees like Moringa fix nitrogen in the soil, laying the ground for a sustainable mix of subsistence crops and cash crops to feed the community and provide an income for years into the future.
