Plant Trees. Support Agroforestry. Grow Resilience.
Deforestation for agricultural expansion causes 15-18% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Agroforestry is a solution working for farmers and the planet. By planting trees in agroforestry systems, farmers can meet the needs of their communities, while generating much needed income through the sale of organic and fair trade products while enhancing their climate resiliency.
Grow Ahead develops local partnerships with small-scale farmer organizations to plant trees in agroforestry systems to support community food security and carbon sequestration. Our programs boost the economic resilience of farmers by diversifying their sources of income.
Despite strong market prices for organic and fair trade products, farmers need support and investment to transition to a resilient, regenerative future. That's where you can help.
