We apply a Community Designed Restoration approach which puts the decisions about what trees to plant, and where, in the hands of individual farmers and their local groups. Plant With Purpose does not favor a plantation tree planting style but rather takes a whole ecosystem approach. Education on how trees benefit crops (agroforestry), ecosystems, and water sources (environmental restoration) starts a movement of tree planting within a watershed and ensures community members are vested in protecting and nurturing these trees long term.
Plant With Purpose talks about tree growing instead of tree planting. What does that mean?
