  • What is a Food Forest?
    A Food Forest is an ancient method of securing food and mimic nature. It is the traditional indigenous way to grow food in policultives. We work to create a regenerative culture to change the way we produce food right now with monocultives and reforest our degraded lands at the same time. Trees play an important role in this, helping farmer families to improve their land, creating healthy soils (through nitrogen fixation), and productivity for abundance in crops, increasing water penetration into underground aquifers, and contribute improvements in the growing environment. This system provides a great biodiversity, helps the community and captures more CO2. Agroforestry combines trees into agriculture!
  • How do you work with the communities?
    We are right now working with two families in one community. Our idea for this 2020-2021 is to start expanding the project to 10 families until we can grow for 2030 to 1000 families and to 2050 to 10.000 families! Step by step! Family by family - we are restoring lands and creating abundance with food security.
  • Do you pay farmers to plant trees?
    Yes! We support the growth of their trees with economic compensation. We help them with working materials, tree nursery materials, and with an economic incentive to take care of their trees. We are working to develop an educational program for the farmers to be trained by experts in ancient future agroforestry techniques to improve the traditional systems that they already have into a more syntropic and productive way. We do the best that we can to balance the project and create a fair share! We accompany all the process of design and development from seed until the forest has grown and its giving harvest, we compromise to buy the harvest at to better princess sometimes 4 times better than the average price that the market use and we work on cultural heritage preservation documenting and sharing information about food at the same time that we give extra incomes, salaries, and different bio-economy support to the families and communities.
  • Who owns the trees?
    The native communities own the land and so the planted trees. They are their benefits for the future. The harvests of fruits and veggies support the community and create food sovereignty and an economic income. 100% of this goes directly to the families. They are responsible to take care of their forest.
  • How do you know the trees are planted?
    We are participating in 80% of the reforestations and accompany the sowing and the visual documentation. If it is not possible for us to be part, the reforestation partners are in charge of the sowing and nourishing the planted saplings. They will send us photos and updates of the trees. On our next visit, we will visit the trees and review them. We have full trust in the families we are working with. After the sowing, we will keep you updated about the whole reforestation, the types of trees planted, as well as photos and video material via social media or newsletter, we will inform you about the sowing seasons and the timeframe, when your trees will be planted.
  • How do we get your fundings?
    We started the project self-financed by its founders for the first 4 years. Since December 2019 we set up a crowdfunding campaign and started to receive the support of conscious donors! We are working hard to develop relationships with a diverse group of forest partners, changemakers, donors and members that join us and help us grow our program. The majority of the support comes from businesses that sponsor our projects and sowings. We receive support form socially and environmentally concerned individuals that follow us through our e-newsletter and social media. We are applying for grants in environmental and cultural fields, let's hope that we get the first one soon!
  • When are the trees going to be planted?
    The reforestation takes place twice a year in March and August. We will collect the growing trees from the tree nursery and plant them together with the local community in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. In between March and August, we are working on fundraisings, art projects, like documentary film, music for forest (soon), exhibitions and other cultural projects.
  • What kind of trees are we planting?
    We grow a variety of fast-growing trees, thorny trees, fruit trees, and hardwoods to create the Food Forest and other specials trees for ecological restoration. A few of our trees are: Higueron, Mastre, Roble, Caracoli, Guaimaro, Canei, Oak, Ceiba, Cacao, Banana, Papaya, Mango, Orange, Avocado, and more!
  • Can I visit a project?
    Of course! To see first-hand the benefit of your contributions, please contact us at We will organize a site visit during our next sowings at the spots, there is also the opportunity to participate in the sowing and even better in an agroforestry workshop!
  • Can I offset my carbon?
    We are not focused on the carbon offset certificate programs, what thrives us and hopefully, you, is that together we can give love to nature in form of trees. Each grown tree sequesters an average of 25kg of carbon annually. Your contribution or business will do more than just offset carbon, it will grow food, helping to eliminate inequality and the risk of poverty.
  • How can I be more involved in the project?

Fundraising is another fun way to get involved and help the planet by sharing your passion with family and friends.
  • What does a planted tree cost?
    Plant trees for Food Forests in the Heart of the World! The reforestation project takes place throughout the year, we are planting trees to improve the soils on a monthly basis, for the food forest and agroforestry systems implementation in the Sierra Nevada, we collect the growing trees from the tree nursery and plant them together with the local communities in the indigenous sowing season that is in March and August. In these times and after when the rains come the necessary conditions of humidity of the soil so that the plant can grow healthy. First, the fruit and the other seeds were collected walking the jungle by residents of the communities surrounding areas, we are starting a process of looking for mother trees and marked and georeferenced to visit them in the next season of fruit and seeds production. Once the seeds are collected, they are taken to the nursery of the native families, and with the help of the other members of the family or the community are in charge of pulping the seeds, for later germination. Later, when the seeds germinate, they are transplanted into bags where they will be gradually subjected to full exposure to the sun and will grow until they have the necessary size to survive and begin to be part of the forest. Be part of the change! How are the funds divided? What's the real price of air, water, medicine, and all the other benefits that a tree produces? This value is up to you! We really believe that this is one of the most difficult questions, there is not a tangible answer for it, for us they don't have a price tag. After some trial and error experiences, we found a value that works in the best sustainable way and distributes between the local communities and us as well to sustain the project. It is not the cost of a tree, it is the cost of all the processes and works behind of a planted tree. The process of planting the tree in an agroforestry system includes also a design of the area, knowledge, and education, collecting the seeds, growing the sampling in the tree nursery over several months, regenerating the soil fixing nitrogen, and doing spiritual works, working materials, the actual planting, caring and nourishing after the sowing, etc. We came to the conclusion of 5€ is what we need to do the work in an affordable way and are distributed as follows starting from June 2023 after 4 years of independent and self-financed work and 3 years of establishment (2019-2022): €0.50 Desing and implementation of the project with ecology methodologies and ancient wisdom €0.50 for one tree sapling to be grown at a nursery €1 Ongoing maintenance of trees €1.5 Material costs €0.3 Spread the word with educational materials for the native families and rest of the world €1,2 Operating costs of the project to plant trees, Community-supported Agricultural creation, research, follow of the impact, tracking and documentation, Offices, rentals, and salaries in Colombia and Austria.
