Establishing Forest Gardens

Event Details
Thursday, February 28, 2019 (All day)
New York, NY

The United Nations Institute for Training and Research New York Office (UNITAR) and Trees for the Future (TREES) are partnering to train international development practitioners in an easily deployable and replicable solution to end hunger, poverty and deforestation.

TREES is hosting a three-part Forest Garden Training Center workshop at United Nations Headquarters in New York City. The Forest Garden Approach utilizes agroforestry and regenerative agriculture to revitalize degraded lands, improve yields, and dramatically increase incomes.

Through a series of fast-paced, interactive sessions, participants in this three-part training series will learn both key agroforestry techniques and training facilitation skills required to pass the Forest Garden Certification Exam. Once a Certified Forest Garden Trainer, anyone, anywhere can participate in Trees for the Future’s global learning community of trainers working across the developing world to meet multiple SDGs (Goals 1, 2, 3, 8, 10, 12, 13, and 15).

Learn more and register here for the first workshop of the series.
