Trees for the Future technicians and trainers undergo a weeklong Training of Trainers seminar before teaching farmers how to plant themselves out of hunger and poverty. The educational seminar focuses on the science of agroforestry and permaculture as well as how best to work with farming groups in a productive and effective way.
