Growing Food Forests
Hundreds of villages in northern Ghana depend on the Daka river for drinking, washing, cooking, and farming. But due to deforestation, the river dries out for months on end. With Tree Aid, we are helping trees grow along the banks of the Daka River that will provide fruit and nuts to local communities but also restore the water level and prevent erosion.
Meanwhile, in the North East Region of Ghana, half a million people rely on food produced by trees. With Eco Restore, we are growing native tree species as a means to provide food and nutrition, all the while enhancing biodiversity and empowering communities
