Community tree planting transforms shared spaces, and we have thousands of more applications on file to support. We plant at schools, community centres, as well as in private homes.
Depending on the area and the need, our initiatives include a combination of fruit, nut and indigenous shade trees. We have also created strategic greenbelts in major city centres across the country.
Food Forests Initiative
Forests are the most productive, self-sustaining, terrestrial ecosystems on Earth and require very little to no maintenance once established.
The Food Forests programme focuses on nutrition through tree planting and builds on years of experience implementing long-term greening and food security interventions.
Enterprise Orchards assists farmers and communities in developing high-yielding, productive orchards. The initiative promotes planting multiple species and varieties to fruit can be harvested over most of the year.
Technical training is coupled with business support to ensure farmers are able to make best use of opportunities provided.
If trees can be grown closer to where they’ll be planted, it impacts the price and supply chain of the project. Thus, community nurseries fulfil an important part in urban greening.
Community nurseries are established as small businesses and can provide much needed income to beneficiaries.
Planting trees through staff volunteering is a fun, meaningful activity and a fantastic team-building activity. It’s also hands-on way to involve your company in Corporate Social Investment (CSI) initiatives.
Run by an FTFA facilitator or ecoprenuer, the event usually takes place at a school or similar shared space.
