We restore the ecological, social, and economic potential of landscapes by planting trees with local farmers communities, and partner organizations. We organize community planting days and provide education about tree planting.
The loss of soil is a major problem worldwide. However, an area can become fertile again in 10 to 15 years. We plant trees in Africa and Spain together with farmers in agroforestry projects.

We organsied a tree planting day with the company, Incyte, in Limburg. Employees of Incyte learned about the positive impact of restoring landscapes, and helped to plant some nut trees on agricultural land. Their hard work was rewarded with a barbecue with local food, drinks and music on a typical farm in the Dutch country side.
Employees from the company Deloitte helped to re-green the space around an old people’s home during a tree planting day that we organised together. We also invited school children to help plant the trees, thus also providing space for social contact and cohesion of these groups of people in a city.
In collaboration with the mayor, the parents association and the school we organised a tree planting day for the whole village, helping to restore the local landscape, currently suffering from desertification. Companies who help us plant trees can choose to fight desertification on our own continent by planting trees with communities and farmers in Spain.
