With Invest For Society and the Eden Reforestation Projects: Plant trees. Save lives.
Everything lives where trees live
The destruction of healthy forest systems causes so many different problems. Trees provide a habitat for animals, purify water sources, control flooding and erosion and help to replenish the soil with nutrients needed for farming. When farmers can’t grow anything their farms fail and they have no option but to move to the overcrowded cities looking for work. Often they have to resort to selling themselves or their families into slavery just to survive.
We start by hiring the local villagers to plant trees.
This gives them a decent income so they can provide for their families again. As the reforestation effort goes on, healthy forests begin to emerge and all the negative effects of deforestation begin to disappear.
At Eden Reforestation Projects we have a holistic approach to reforestation and ecological restoration.
- Our national leaders partner with villages that are committed to restoring their forests.
- We then hire and train local villagers to plant new trees.
- They plant native tree species.
- The villages protect their new forests because they have a vested interest in them.
- Top tier seedling survival rate – over 80%. Even higher when natural generation is factored in.
VILLAGES MANAGE OUR NURSERIES & PLANTING SITES.
