1000 Fruit Trees for Smallholder Farmers in Panama

Protecting our climate while reducing poverty. This is our motivation. We organize monthly seminars with indigenous farmers in Western Panama, donate fruit tree seedlings and support farmers along tree establishment to product marketing

How can forest protection be reconciled with increasing income and healthy diets?

Fruit trees can make an important contribution. They traditionally form the basis of smallholder farming systems in the tropics. But this knowledge is increasingly lost. We seek to rediscover, conserve and jointly distribute this knowledge with indigenous farmers.

We grow fruit tree seedlings in our nursery. In the course of seminars we do not only donate these trees to farmers but also exchange ideas from tree cultivation to new ways of processing and marketing of products. 

This is how traditional agroforestry systems may form innovative solutions to combat climate change
