The Food Forests Africa Movement (FFAM) includes people at many stages of learning. In fact, we believe that you never stop learning while you have a Food Forest.

Our Food Forest Ambassadors are typically students/youths, at the early stages of learning these techniques. Some of their biggest challenges include resources, including the space in which they can start their own Food Forests. Since they often cannot use an entire garden space, they are encouraged to find a waste space and use techniques to build (preferably close to the kitchen where the produce can quickly be accessed).

We also see the benefit of partnering with our creators and ambassadors. Creators often have more resources (e.g., space) and they can also serve as mentors to Ambassadors through any ups-and-downs.

Food Forest Schools are the latest link in our Movement. Many schools in Uganda and East Africa have spaces where Food Forests can thrive, allowing students to have diverse nutritious meals and possibly bring in income for the school. Some of the techniques we emphasize include trash management, vegetable growing, use of animal waste, and composting.

Hi Gerald, thank you for sharing information about your movement with us. I had a question: What did you wish you would have known before you started working on this topic and could be useful to share with other (conservation) professionals now? Thanks again for sharing your insights with the community here.
