Partner Spotlight: Trees for the Future

Our flagship partner, Trees for the Future is dedicated to planting trees with rural communities in the developing world, enabling them to restore their environment, grow more food, and build a sustainable future.

Trees for the Future does this work through their Forest Garden Program. The Forest Garden Program is a simple, replicable, and scalable approach with proven success. How? It starts with trees. Through their 4-year training program, called the Forest Garden Approach, farmers plant thousands of trees that protect and bring nutrients back to the soil. This helps farmers grow a variety of fruits and vegetables. Forest Garden farmers gain increases in income and access to food, even in the first year, all while improving the environment.

Jade works with Trees for the Future by providing funding for these projects, planting one tree for every mat sold – the more mats sold, the more trees there will be for the future. Through our buy a mat, plant a tree program, we have now planted over TWO MILLION trees.
