IT STARTS WITH A SINGLE TREE


1: THE SITUATION IS URGENT

The Earth is losing trees and healthy soils. After trees are cut down, the landscape loses its fertility. Hunger and conflict grow. Biodiversity dwindles, and water supplies dry up. Degraded land hastens climate change. We have less than ten years to turn it around. But there is something we can do.

2: THE SOLUTION IS IN OUR HANDS

Plant more trees. Support eco-agriculture. Our holistic approach helps local people to restore living soil and biodiversity through “agro-ecology,” creating food security, rural income, and sustainable communities. Helping landscapes to thrive again “draws down” CO2 into trees, plants, and soil. It mitigates climate change and preserves a healthy planet for future generations.

3: JOIN US

Help people seed their future--and ours. WIth our local partners, we practice agoforestry to restore the ecology and economy of some of the world's poorest places. We help communities to renew and protect healthy landscapes; return barren land to fertility; nurture biodiversity; develop long-term livelihoods; and preserve cultural values.


Plant Trees. Regenerate Soil. Reverse Climate Change.

OUR GOAL IS

Transformative Change


We are awardwinning agro-foresters. A global innovation hub. A platform for regenerative strategies. And we are catalyzing a worldwide movement.

Over the past 14 years, we have pioneered a uniquely integrated suite of holistic programs that include:

  • Community-based reforestation and agroecology

    • Restoration of Kenya’s Rumuruti Forest and Pungu Watershed; Ethiopia’s Menagasha Forest; Mexico’s San Juan Atzingo Forest; support of biocultural practices

    • Biodiverse landscape restoration; community woodlots; reintroduction of indigenous crops

    • Restoration of soil organic matter (SOM) for bionutrient-dense food and carbon sequestration

  • Education In 85 GreenWorld Schools, thousands of Kenyan children plant seedbed nurseries and care for multipurpose trees that also provide nutrition; thousands of farmers learn regenerative agriculture

  • Social enterprise including complementary currencies; moringa oil; maize fortified with moringa flour

  • Appropriate technology including “green” charcoal to reduce tree-cutting and rainwater catchment

  • Women’s empowerment including reproductive health

  • Social Healing including Trees for Peace; elder-youth alliances to restore sacred kaya forests; conflict resolution between ethnicities, political rivals, and faiths.

  • Media and Public Outreach including “Text TREE” on Times Square screens on EarthDay; Green World Children’s Choirs (with Disney composer Alan Menken); conferences (ReGen18.com); concerts.
