JOIN US IN SOLUTIONS ACTIVISM!
Support organic, regenerative agroforestry as we help locally created projects in two biomes: Atlantic Forest and Cerrado.
Agroforestry ~ Guatemala
Slash and burn corn is the cause of devegetation of entire hillsides. Support community transitions to agroforestry.
For the iGiveTrees team, Solutions Activism is restoring the degraded ecosystems where we were born, in Brazil. The forests were slashed and burned for coffee, sugar, corn, soy and cattle. As a result there has been a decline in our biodiversity, pollinator and wildlife populations, as well as aquifer depletion, leading to epic droughts. So we plant native species trees and food crops in a truly regenerative manner, while sharing knowledge about easy to implement systems in rural communities. We care for the soil, the plants and the people involved because “they” are “us.”
Every year since 2010 iGiveTrees has given locally grown native species trees to smallholders in the states of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro, in the biome of Mâta Atlantica, Brazil.
In 2015 iGiveTrees was recognized as a citizen initiative that mitigates the effects of global warming by the French Ministry of Environment launched during COP21. As a result, we’ve been able to present our work at COP22, COP23, COP24 and COP25.
In 2021 our work was recognized by São Paulo University’s Planetary Health Alliance, and we began supporting agroforestry projects in Guatemala.
In 2022 we began to support a project in the biome of Cerrado, Brazil. To date 50,000 native species trees have been planted while supporting local NGOs, seed banks, nurseries and soil health on 3 continents.
