What is Evergreening?
EverGreen Agriculture integrates trees with food crops and livestock to create more sustainable and productive agricultural systems for small holder farming families.
EverGreening can rapidly restore degraded land, provide additional revenue streams from the sale of fuelwood, sustainably harvested timber, fruits, nuts and other tree-based produce, and over time build a significant asset base for smallholder farming households, as the tree trunks can be sold as a coping mechanism in times of extreme stress or hardship.
The real work is in the “regreening of mindscapes”. If that battle can be won, turning enemies of trees into friends, the rest is relatively easy. Nature will heal itself, if we give it a chance.

I hear countless…
