DONATIONS keep us going – click on an image below to help us grow!
NATIVE SPECIES TREES – $25
Help sponsor the gift of native species trees for a food forest. We’ll be planting 300 native species trees in each plot, with an emphasis on tropical staple tree crops. These will include Coconut, Jackfruit, Avocado, Mango, Papaya, Pitanga, Aurocaria, Fruita de Conde, Jaibuticaba, Banana, Passionflower, Pineapple and many others! This includes the cost of organic soil amendments, mulch and 2 years of maintenance after plantings. Since there’s such a diversity of trees being planted, individual costs vary, so this is a fund toward the whole forest plot, not the cost for one tree.
NATIVE TREE SEEDS – $50
Help sponsor the gift of native species tree seeds. We support back country sustainable seed harvesters who supply their local seed banks and nurseries. These are large bags of seeds, not small packets. The size of the bag depends upon the type of seed, but each one holds approximately 1,000 seeds. This is the way we protect biodiversity.
