Planting Trees for Healthier Communities



HELPING PEOPLE AND PLANET

YOGO has planted over 28,100 'forest garden' trees through our "one for one" Food Trees program. With every yoga mat you purchase, YOGO provides a food-bearing tree plus restorative agroforestry training for a low-income family in Africa.  This provides multiple benefits: income, agriculture training, food, and education.  


ONE TREE PLANTED PER MAT

 

Our partner NGO has completed 30 years of forestry and is currently working alongside local staff in African countries Cameroon, Kenya, Senegal, Uganda, and Tanzania. They don't just pop in and out: the long-term programs address poverty by equipping farmers to produce food, restore the environment, and create goods for sale.

Trees for the Future works ensures each family can independently and permanently feed themselves and farm in a way that restores the environment. 

 

WHY "FOOD TREES"?

Food trees are amazing! “Forest gardens” revitalize degraded land, support farming of other food, enhance soil, produce a bounty of diverse products, and counteract deforestation. Agroforestry mixes trees with other diverse crops thereby: healing the environment, providing food, and providing long-term livelihoods.

This is a long-term independent solution: instead of "air dropping" support that can distort local economies, we provide the tools for locals to build income from the bottom up.

ENVIRONMENTAL UPSIDES!

Each tree: sequesters about one ton of carbon to reduce climate change, supports families, and restores degraded landscapes.  

WHEN YOU PLANT TREES, YOU ALSO:

empower women

restore biodiversity

help families feed themselves

provide permanent employment

create educational opportunities for children

permanently increase the income of poor farmers

avoid deforestation

build strong communities

create fodder to feed livestock

reverse environmental degradation

remove tons of carbon  from the atmosphere  

provide fuel so villagers don’t need to cut down trees
