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.
