Cultivating the potential
to flourish by restoring
the land we live on.
Eden Thriving plants trees in order to restore the ecological balance necessary for thriving.
Unsustainable environmental practices such as cutting trees for firewood, charcoal making and clearing without re-planting have depleted the landscapes across Africa.
Eden works with local communities to restore and repair degraded landscapes, because the improvement of land directly correlates to an improved quality of life: crop production increases, health improves and families can escape survival mode.

Listen to Kenyan elders explain the need for landscape restoration
Rural, under-served communities like Gatamaiyu are pushed closer to poverty as the need to thrive exacts massive pressure on local natural resources.
Unsustainable environmental practices such as cutting trees for firewood, charcoal making and clearing without re-planting have drasticaly depleted the landscape. Underground springs have dried up, heavy rain run-off washes away top soil causing dangerous floods and mudslides, and women and children walk far to collect firewood and water. Biodiversity loss means soil has been depleted of healthy fungi and microorganisms and threatened species have been wiped out for food or economic reasons.
