IT BEGINS WITH THE FOREST

AGROFOREGEN'S MODEL FOR REGENERATIVE AGROFORESTY

 

Aligning Capital with Ecology can restore both.

Agroforegen has created a unique model for conservation, cultivation, and restoration of forests and under-utilized agricultural land.

Agroforegen pairs innovative land access models with high-value, long-term Regenerative Agroforestry crops, producing balanced ecological, economic, and social outcomes.

 

Working in the Watershed

The Catskill Mountains of New York are the principal source of New York City's Watershed.

Agroforegen is building a scalable model that protects and restores the land that provides clean water, green jobs, and natural abundance.
