Sustainable Agriculture

Sustainable Agriculture

Group 15498

Our agriculture initiatives supply farmers with trees and medicinal plants and support the transition to more resilient, diversified food systems and economies.

Sustainable Agriculture Creates Sustainable Communities

Farmers in Morocco are facing unprecedented challenges to agricultural development. Rapid environmental degradation is exacerbated by drought, extreme temperatures, and land use change. Agricultural areas are characterized by poor soil and a dramatic, sustained loss of biodiversity.

We equip farmers with the resources to make sustainable agriculture — and food sovereignty — an option. By revisiting traditional agriculture that’s integrated into the local ecosystem, prioritizing biodiversity that is useful for farming, and ensuring the genetic diversity of crops, locally adapted, resilient food systems will re-emerge and be strengthened.

We focus on fruit and nut tree agriculture because of the many benefits to tree planting projects. Providing native trees and medicinal herbs to farmers while supporting capacity-building for growing, harvesting, processing, and selling products is an incredibly powerful way to support sustainable agricultural development — and it’s something you can be a part of.
