Trees For The Future

The Mission

Mission is to provide smallholder farmers with pathways out of poverty and hunger by planting trees in Forest Gardens around the world.

Why Trees?

Planting trees provides families with more than just food. It provides income, empowerment, unity, leadership, education and even saves lives.


Sees a world where every farmer has a Forest Garden on their land as a reliable source of nutrition and income. This reality would create an environmentally friendly and sustainable global food system.


Bring 1 million people out of hunger and poverty by establishing 125,000 Forest Gardens by 2025.



“I get more from my two acre Forest Garden than I could get from six acres of peanut crop. My sons have a future now, and as I age, trees will continue to feed my family.”
