Agro-Forestry Project-Reforestation

Agro-forestry projects, environmental education, reforestation and vegetable gardens are the key elements of this program to bring environmental restoration, food security and agricultural small business to Goyena. This project was developed in partnership with Trees for the Future, an international NGO based in Washington DC, and is designed to provide reforestation, firewood and soil restoration trees for the community, expanding to include vegetable gardens, fruit and citrus trees and other agricultural products. Students participate in a number of activities related to this project including nursery construction, planting, harvesting and transplanting.
