The EDF centre is beginning a program in agro-forestry to encourage reforestation and discourage continued deforestation in our communities. EDF is currently planting trees in a nursery area to provide resources for  organizations and individuals who want to take the initiative in reforestation their communities.

Horticultural seedlings will be for sale as a deterrent measure on deforestation. Those organizations and individuals wishing to order can do so by downloading an order form (coming soon here at our website).
