Dave lives off of donations! We are so thankful for donations that we even donate a tree for every % you tip through our partner, Trees for the Future (www.trees.org).
Planting trees gives families more than just food. It provides income, empowerment, unity, leadership, education and even saves lives. Trees for the Future provides families in Sub-Saharan Africa with sustainable food sources, livestock feed, products to sell, fuel wood and up to a 500% increase in their annual income. Since 1989, Trees has planted over 115 million trees in dozens of countries and revitalized hundreds of thousands of acres of soil while changing people’s lives forever.
Farmers learn to plan for their family’s future by discovering how planting 4,000 trees with food crops will help them make more money, grow more food and build a sustainable future.
Farmers learn to plant rows of nitrogen fixing trees in and along borders of their degraded land to protect the field from pests and stop erosion.
Farmers learn to plant over 12 types of fruit trees and vegetables to meet market opportunities and the nutritional needs of their families.
Forest Gardens give families: Significant increases in income, more paydays, more nutritious food to eat, security from risks related to markets, pests, and weather extremes, free alternatives to pesticides and fertilizers, feed for livestock, and fuel wood to cook.
