etnies teamed up with Trees for the Future in 2012, and aligning BASPAT with them plants trees, feeds thousands and stops hunger. Trees for the Future is an agroforestry non-profit that trains farmers through a 4-year training program, called the Forest Garden Approach, farmers plant thousands of trees that restore their soil.
The Forest Garden Approach is a solution to the problem of planet earth losing trees at the rate of 50 soccer fields per minute. The Forest Garden Approach plants trees and provides food security, increased income, restored land and carbon capture. This reaches nine of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.
The Forest Garden approach starts with farmers planting thousands of trees that restore soil. This helps farmers grow a large variety of fruits and vegetables to eat and sell. So not only does each Forest Garden capture carbon and increase biodiversity, but it also ends hunger and poverty. etnies consumers and Trees for the Future are working together to grow a more sustainable system to feed the world, build local economies and better our planet.
The Forest Gardens are currently being created in countries in East and West Africa impacted greatly by climate change, food insecurity and poverty.
