Plant Trees

We're on a mission to plant 1 million trees in partnership with small-scale farmers.

Deforestation for agricultural expansion causes 15–18% of global greenhouse gas emissions. 

Agroforestry can help. It’s a solution that benefits farmers and the planet. By planting trees in agroforestry systems — together with crops — farmers can meet community needs, generate income through organic and fair trade product sales, and enhance their climate resiliency. 

Grow Ahead helps by developing local partnerships with small-scale farmer organizations. Then, these organizations have the resources and education to plant trees in agroforestry systems that go on to support community food security and reduce carbon dioxide in the atmosphere, also known as carbon sequestration. 

Grow Ahead programs also boost the economic resilience of farmers by diversifying their income sources. Despite strong market prices for organic and fair trade products, farmers need support and investment to shift to a resilient, regenerative future.

That is where you can help.

Why Agroforestry

Agroforestry is a way of planting crops and trees together to improve social, economic, and environmental benefits. Agroforestry “systems” help farmers restore water and nutrients to their soil, increase the production of food, and pull carbon out of the atmosphere.
