Eden Project

At the center of Eden Reforestation Projects is our relationships with local communities. They work alongside them to produce, plant, and protect tens of millions of trees every month, thereby creating jobs to support them in restoring their local environment and economy long-term. Working in extremely remote settings, our national directors lead these communities with grit and relentless determination through a range of challenges, from extreme weather and landslides, to poachers, bandits, and wild animals.

Our teams

Many of their leaders grew up in a culture other than their country of nationality. As a result, they relate well to the communities and work effectively in remote, poverty-stricken settings. They have built teams that are committed to success, adaptable, and intrepid. They are willing to catch a four-foot-long iguana, deter elephants from trampling nurseries and handle being held at gunpoint by thugs. Despite political unrest, civil wars, major storms, earthquakes, warlords, bandits, thugs, poachers, and wildlife, they continue to plant.

Our credibility and results enable us to attract a wide array of donors and top-quality board members. As our budget increases, we have the resources to invest in developing our carbon project subsidiary, Compassionate Carbon, and implementing technology systems to expand monitoring, evaluation, and reporting to donors.
