“Money doesn’t grow on trees” is such a tall tale! By partnering with Trees for the Future and donating to the non-profit’s Forest Garden Program, it truly does!
With your help, impoverished families from the developed world can build a more sustainable future through the power of trees.
A forest garden contains 4,000 planted trees — fast-growing, thorny, fruit, nut and hardwoods, among others. Each tree has a specific purpose that helps lift families out of poverty.
Several trees produce food to nourish families and serve as fodder to feed livestock. These nutritious vegetables and vitamin-rich fruits are especially helpful for children’s growth and brain development.
With this newfound income, families can comfortably sustain their daily lives. They’re also given more opportunities to expand their farms, send children to school and pay off debt.
Families can rest easy knowing their crops are protected from pests and erosion by planting rows of thorny, nitrogen-fixing trees on and along their land.
Since the trees used for fuelwood regrow quickly, families have a reliable and renewable source for cooking food and staying warm at night.
