Traditional agriculture has a heavy carbon footprint, particularly due to the use of harmful agrochemicals. The Forest Garden project off-sets an average of 63 tons of Carbon per Forest Garden.
Reducing deforestation by eliminating farmers dependence on forests for food, timber, and more helps wildlife conservation. Farmers now sustain their livelihoods off of their lands, not by cutting down trees in neighbouring jungles and forests. The natural habitat of many creatures such as birds, bees, bats and chimpanzees are being saved.
