Since its founding in 1989 Trees for the Future (TREES) a 501(c)3 has planted more than 150 million trees and transformed the lives of thousands of families. By establishing Forest Gardens we teach agroforestry and sustainable land management practices that not only provide farmers and their families with greater access to food and increased incomes but also preserve natural resources for future generations. From our headquarters based in Silver Spring MD we oversee programs across sub Saharan Africa including Cameroon Kenya Tanzania Senegal and Uganda. In every country we listen to the needs of farming communities and respond to those needs in light of local cultural and environmental conditions. We provide training seeds and materials needed to sustainably grow harvest and sell food fuelwood forage timber and other agricultural products. While TREES provides training and materials participants provide land water and labor to ensure buy in and long term sustainability. This in turn has many positive impacts on alleviating poverty hunger and healing the environment. Sub impacts also include nutrition women's empowerment education entrepreneurship and much more.
