75% of the Earth is degraded. Restoring this degraded land is key to winning the fight against climate change.

We build Regeneration Hubs designed as a deforestation solution. Hubs empower women and teach them to plant millions of life-saving trees. Trees that can nourish the more than 150 million — chronically malnourished children worldwide.

HOW WE WORK
We share a replicable and scalable model to accelerate the restoration of degraded lands. It was designed to halt tropical deforestation by providing for the needs of local people. We partner with local community leaders, providing an incubator to assist with the adoption of our Regeneration Hubs by non-profits, agricultural enterprises, and Indigenous communities who want to protect their forest lands around the world.
We currently work with Hub partners in more than 10 countries. With our help, they are improving the lives of tens of thousands of farmers, who are ready to plant millions of trees in the coming decade and eager to transition to regenerative agriculture. We have a waiting list of leaders who want our help. Your support will help us expand our reach so we can regenerate even faster. Join us in restoring the world’s degraded lands.
PARTNERSHIPS FOR SCALE
Corporate partners, Foundations, and global NGOs are key to scaling regeneration quickly. Hubs help meet growing consumer demand for climate action and offer companies a solution to quickly scale up their access to regeneratively grown and ethically sourced ingredients. Companies can work with our expert consultants to use our model within their supply chains or custom design a tree-planting program to offset climate emissions.
Agroforestry instead of monocropping
Hubs promote ecosystem restoration. The first zone of tree planting is centered around a multi-layered regenerative agroforestry system designed to meet the family’s food and nutrition security, as well as to produce high-value seedlings for large-scale reforestation of tree crops that will generate new income through diversification of markets available once crops go through value-added processing in the Hub micro-factory. Hubs generate greater wealth by reducing crop loss too. This combination provides long-term incentivizes for local people who must agree to protect forests and wildlife. The regenerative agriculture transition allows for a wider array of products which varies by region and can include tree nuts for butters and oils, perennial staple crops, coconuts, spices, pineapple, vanilla, dragon fruit, banana, shade-grown coffee and cacao, rubber, essential oils, medicinals, superfoods, bamboo, & perennial biofuels.
Innovative food processing micro-factory
The factories are designed by our team to meet the needs of families based on the specific location. They are made with off-the-shelf components that fit into easily shipped containers that can reach remote forest locations. A micro-factory can start out small, serving 40 families in a pilot project, and then can grow to serve over 6,000 families. The system design is adaptable and can be converted to process a wide array of local crops to generate resilient incomes and adapt to changing markets and climatic conditions.
Multiple valuable co-benefits
Regeneration Hubs were designed to incentivize behavior change by producing many valuable items needed by families living in rural villages. Communities decide what they want the factory to co-generate. It can be designed to produce perennial tree crop biofuels, which can be used to provide green electricity. This can help connect communities to the internet for remote learning and virtual health clinics or to power clean cookstoves and bio-diesel or ethanol-powered transport. Hubs can produce clean drinking water, livestock feed, and essential crop amendments that lower farmers’ costs and increase profits, like biochar, natural plant-growth accelerators, microbial inoculants, and organic fertilizers. The governance of a Hub is can be done by the local community through cooperative structures, and profits are meant to stay in the community to be reinvested in further restoring degraded lands, protecting forests, and improving the quality of life for everyone.
