Every time you support Sunny Succulents Co, we plant trees with a portion of the proceeds. Through our network of registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations, we help thousands of farming families across five countries in Sub-Saharan Africa plant "Forest Gardens."
A Forest Garden is a combination of trees, shrubs, fruits, vegetables, and grains, strategically planted to support one another, the land, and farmers. Forest Gardens are an example of agroforestry, which incorporates trees to protect and improve the soil. As opposed to the common approach to agriculture known as monocropping (planting and harvesting one crop), Forest Gardens are home to a diverse array of species, including food crops and medicinal crops which allows a farming family to improve their nutrition and stabilize their income. Lastly, Forest Gardens optimize space used in an area and spread harvest across time so that the farmer can get the most out of their land and the growing seasons.
