Carbon Farming Partner Gula Gula

The Gula Gula Food Forest Program works to reverse poverty, climate change and biodiversity loss in an integrated manner through the restoration of degraded lands in West Sumatra, Indonesia. They achieve this by converting degraded land into productive food forests that capture and store carbon; training communities in assisted natural regeneration techniques and in building regenerative forest enterprise cooperatives. Through this, community incomes are not only supported through the trading of sustainably sourced food forest products, but also through profit-sharing of carbon credit sales.

Reviving India’s lost desert forest in Rajasthan.
This method of planting is 100x biodiverse, 100% natural and 30x denser compared to monoculture tree stands. In 2-3 years only, we create a maintenance-free, biodiverse forest.

 

This is an ambitious project looking to bring back native species that have existed in the region for thousands of years. Our goal is not only to create a forest and restore biodiversity but also to build a research center for reforestation. This project will be a destination for anyone in India researching native trees, seeds as well as techniques for reforestation on arid terrain. For this forest we will be using 25 native species!
