PLANTING FOOD FORESTS TO FEED FAMILIES
School children and their communities will learn regenerative food production systems, which protect and strengthen biodiversity, restore depleted soils and feed families. This partnership is requesting funds for two planting seasons this year. Approximately 15-20,000 trees will be planted as food forests by school children and their communities.
As rural Ugandan families become less food secure, it is essential for local communities and young people to access skills that enable them to understand and practice food production in environmentally friendly ways that do not further damage the already soils or endanger other species in the neighboring local resources. A food forest is a food production system that focuses on diverse dietary needs of humans, while at the same time protecting our land and the earth we all share.
A well designed and maintained food production system will protect and regenerate our soil, sink and store water, and sequester carbon. Food Forests Uganda teaches regenerative agriculture to enable long term food security, provide income opportunities for youth and improved nutrition for communities and schools, climate-smart gardens also create a safer habitat for domestic animals and insects as well as a safer environment for Wildlife and ultimately, food forests produce an abundance of food and supplies while regenerating a healthy ecosystem.
It's planting time and we need your help! JOIN our eco-movement by helping us purchase avocado, guava, tree tomato, papaya, and mango seedlings for planting by our food forests Uganda students and families.
