Kenya is an incredibly beautiful place from the creativity of the people to its diversity of its landscapes and wildlife.¬†From the highlands to the coast, Kenya has an incredible diversity of forest types that have long-supported communities and wildlife. The cultural and ecological heritage of Kenya’s forests is vibrant and unique, but the management of them in recent decades has been unsustainable.

Eden’s work around the world aims to alleviate poverty and restore socio-ecological systems through intensive reforestation work in a variety of forest habitats. From empowering women to sequestering carbon, the impact of the work is multifaceted. The need and enthusiasm for reforestation in Kenya is great.

Join us as we are working towards launching this work in The Great Rift Valley and the Northern Coast in Kenya.

 

 


  • The Great Rift Valley

    Kijabe Forest

    • In Partnership with a local organization we have a vision for a thriving afromontane ecosystem that provides habitat for wildlife, sustainable economic opportunities for local families, a reliable water supply, landslide protection, and other important ecosystem services for the surrounding community for generations to come.
  • Northern Coast

    Lamu County

    • In partnership with a local organization the planting efforts will focus on mangrove and coastal forest habitats. In Lamu County of Kenya there are few opportunities for long-term employment and high levels of poverty. The Eden Reforestation Projects nursery will provide employment, in addition to restoring key habitats that support livelihoods and cultural heritage.
