Our mission is to combat soil degradation and poverty in Kenya's drylands by enabling farmers to invest in reforestation using drought-resistant indigenous tree species.
Working closely with farmers, we have tested and refined a comprehensive program involving agro-forestry, improved agricultural practices, sustainable wood harvesting, and small business development. There are three parts: a) education through bi-weekly classes and on-site consultations; b) a demonstration farm where participants learn best practices in a hands-on manner; c) a tree nursery where we raise indigenous tree saplings that are offered at subsidized rates to program participants.
