FORESTOPIA works with small-holder farmers around the globe to promote sustainable livelihoods and resource conservation. We cultivate long-term relationships with communities and grower/harvester cooperatives, working together to implement agroforestry and productive conservation practices. Agroforestry methods, which integrate perennial trees with other crops and livestock in managed systems, can help increase and diversify farmer incomes while providing numerous environmental benefits, such as improved soil and water quality, bio-diversity protection and increased carbon sequestration. Sustainable harvesting of non-timber forest products, can be an important contribution to viable conservation of forest resources and livelihoods of forest-dependent communities.
Forestopia also works with our partners to develop markets for their agroforestry and non-timber forest products, and offers for sale a range of products including cacao, coffee, spices, tea, nuts, oils, flours, resins and natural dyes. All profits from the sale of Forestopia products are re-invested to support capacity building in the grower communities we engage with.
Coming soon in Fall, 2020, Forestopia will launch an expanded online marketplace, featuring a broad selection of quality products sustainably sourced from our grower and harvester partners.
Forestopia, we're in the market for a healthy planet!
