For the time being, a substantial part of the available funds – up to 50% – will be used to support projects of the Rich Forests program.
Rich Forests – coordinated by Both ENDS- collaborates with Southern experts and various social entrepreneurs to construct more food forests in the Netherlands and worldwide, and links producers of Forest Garden Products from these forests to ethical buyers. They also work on a model that helps to compare the costs and benefits of food forests to arable land producing one type of crop. Such information is relevant to gain more interest from farmers and investors in food forests, and promote sustainable production systems on a larger scale.
In the Netherlands, Rich Forests works together with different local food forest design experts, amongst others the founders of Food Forest Ketelbroek.
