Agrofarming is a sustainable agricultural process that allows communities to create long lasting eco-systems that allow them to develop the basic opportunities we often take for granted.
Specially trained technicians work in developing countries, helping communities and farmers understand forest garden design, composting, nursery development, perma-gardening and out planting techniques.
These rural communities are then supplied with the trees needed to create sustainable eco-systems. They are then provided with ongoing support to ensure they continue to develop their skills and create permanent change.
Due to the range of trees planted, communities can:
Grow their own staple crops, vegetables fruit
Create low hanging leaves and foraging spaces for animals
Use surplus wood for fuel and construction
Fruit trees provide foods for families and contribute to enhancing their diet
Products sold on the market provide income and facilitate access to healthcare
Much of nature has been lost to farming for things such as, livestock, rapseed, tobacco and coal
Land that has lost trees is more susceptible to flooding, mudslides and landslides
Planting trees creates and sustains biodiversity
Surplus of food sold drives income and enables communities to provide education for their children
Creating higher-skilled individuals supports long term positive changes
The food that is not used can be traded for goods
Creates jobs in communities where there is little opportunity
