The Agroforestry Research Trust

is a non-profit making charity, registered in England, which researches and educates about agroforestry and perennial crops. We do practical research on our trial grounds, run courses, publish guides, and sell plants, seeds and books. We are a carbon-negative organisation - we store more carbon on our land sites than we produce from all our activities.

The Food Forest Foundation

We are thrilled to announce the launch of this sister organisation (a registered charity in the UK) as a hub for funding projects.

The FFF aims to raise funds to then give grant funding to people and projects starting forest gardens and food forests across the world.

Initially the FF needs to raise funds so if you are in a position to donate a one-off amount or a regular subscription, or you know someone else who can, please look at
