It’s the miracle regeneration story the world barely noticed.
Over the past four decades, farmers in Niger have quietly grown 200 MILLION trees. They’ve restored ancient forests across millions of acres of dusty, drought-prone landscape while massively boosting their crop yields. And all without planting a single sapling!
Now farmers in other African countries want to repeat the miracle – and we can help.
Niger’s heroes triggered this extraordinary regeneration by reviving a traditional farming technique where tree stumps are left to sprout new growth and crops planted around them. If others follow, we could see millions upon millions more acres revived to lush forest – but first they need to know about it.
Groups like the Forum for Natural Regeneration in northern Ghana are working hard to get the word out. But they’re a tiny team. If we all chip in we can supercharge their efforts, helping fund a massive outreach effort to local communities, as well as training and mentoring for farmers.
With your help we could see the rebirth of millions more trees – and help spread this simple but game-changing technique globally. Are you in?
