A teacher in primary school in Tanzania teaches her students tree-planting techniques before turning them loose to plant seedlings under her supervision. Training is an important part of our partners, Trees for The Future, tree planting initiative -- their technicians provide the seeds and the agroforestry knowledge, and local farmers and communities do the hard work of growing and maintaining the forest gardens. When buying a watch or wallet, you are contributing to their initiatives to restore our beautiful earth.
This is how a forest garden usually starts: with a handful of tree seedlings planted in bare ground. Within five years, this land in Honduras will look like the lush arrays of trees and plants you'll see in Trees for the Futures other projects around the world. Forest gardens help to shade the land, hold moisture in the soil, and provide food and cash crops for local farmers. Changing lives, changing the planet.
