VIDEO: Why We Plant Trees in Africa

Lester Thornhill, Life's Abundance

Lester Thornhill, President & CEO of Life’s Abundance, wanted to find a path to carbon neutrality for his Evergreen® company. Uninspired by the options he found nearby, he looked farther afield and settled on a program called Trees for the Future. This organization plants trees. All over the world. Lester has invested in a project that is creating Forest Gardens in Senegal, Africa. The project not only captures an enormous amount of carbon each year, but also supports the local community in important and significant ways.

Watch and learn more about this initiative and about Forest Gardens.
