Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

  Summary

 

 

Tree-based farming is a traditional system that integrates forest trees into agriculture. Tree-based farming practices
yield multiple benefits to farmers. In the last century, trees have been cut down from farmland to grow only crop
plants and increase the food production. The best
solution is to revitalize farmland by adopting traditional tree-based farming practices.
