Food & Trees for Africa (FTFA) has 21 years of greening experience through internationally recognised programmes.
Started in 1990, FTFA is a social enterprise that contributes to sustainable development through greening, climate change action, sustainable natural resource management and permaculture food security programmes. FTFA has distributed over 4 million trees, facilitated the creation of thousands of organic food gardens for the poorest and launched the first carbon calculator, the Climate Change Leadership Awards and the Carbon Protocol of South Africa.
Working in partnership - and with the support, endorsement and cooperation of government, the private and public sectors, aid agencies, organisations, media and individuals - FTFA implements: Trees for All, Trees for Homes, Bamboo for Africa, Food Gardens for Africa and EduPlant.
These programmes lead to healthier lives for impoverished communities, more sustainable green environments and increased environmental awareness.
