Watch Your Forest Grow!
You can watch your forest grow through our interactive map. This shows the locations of the trees that you have planted so far. Some markers may represent more than one tree, this is due to the close proximity of some of these trees.
Thank you so much!
Our Tree Planting Project
Trees are especially efficient at sequestering carbon from the atmosphere. Planting trees is our response to climate change, but we also believe that trees offer so much to a community. This is why we are using IcFEM Kenya’s network of local units to plant trees across Western Kenya.
We do not own land and so we are inviting smallholders to plant trees on their land, some may only plant a couple, this is absolutely fine. We believe that every tree has an impact.
1. Invite Local Farmers
We invite small holders from across our local units to be a part of this project. This project is open to anyone who lives in the area around an IcFEM local transformation unit.
2. Provide Training
Smallholders receive all the training necessary to ensure that they are able to take care of their trees at all stages of their lifecycle.
3. Provide Tree saplings
Tree saplings are delivered to the smallholder and a short planting demonstration is done.
4. Farmers Plant Trees
Each tree that is planted is recorded on our, specially built, mobile application. This gives us real time data on how many trees have been planted, and where they are.
5. Farmers look after trees
Smallholders continue to receive support and advice on how to keep their trees healthy.
6. Farmers get produce from trees
All produce from the trees belongs to the smallholders and they are free to use it as they wish.
7. Provide ongoing advice & support
Smallholders will work with IcFEM to assess the best use and maintenance of these trees.
How you can help
Trees are £1.50 to plant and you will be sent an email with information about which species have been planted and where they have been planted.
You can plant a single or multiple trees for yourself and watch it grow and make an impact in communities in Kimilili.
We believe that every tree has an impact.
You can buy a single or multiple trees as a gift for someone. This means they will have the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of communities in Kimilili.
