Food and Trees for South Africa is the first and only national, public benefit, civil society greening and food gardening organisation in SA addressing climate change. It all started in 1990 when a group of concerned individuals, representing the major greening organisations in South Africa, came together with the realisation that the real environmental crisis in this country centred on people and uplifting quality of life and addressing climate change. They recognized that a simple way of achieving this was through the greening of these unhealthy, denuded and degraded landscapes. This was the birth of Food & Trees for Africa (FTFA), the first (and still only) national non-government, non-profit, greening organisation in South Africa.

Food & Trees for Africa has assisted tens of thousands of people and remained in touch and often ahead of South Africa's democratic and more sustainable development. The achievements of this remarkable NGO are too diverse to list but can be found on their website. The FTFA are involved in the following programmes:

National Tree Distribution Programme
FTFA receives applications for trees from underserved communities living in barren dusty townships across South Africa and attempts to provide trees for as many as possible through the help of sponsors and FTFA's certificate programme. Once funding is received FTFA orders trees from the nearest tree grower and delivers these with instructions on how to plant and maintain trees. Over 2.5 million trees have been distributed in this way to schools, clinics, old age homes, hospices, police stations, streets and parks, but there are calls for many more.

Trees for Homes
Trees for Homes is a highly successful and innovative public greening initiative that contributes nationally in a visible way to building a new country, whilst addressing climate change at the same time. This initiative, started in 2000, aims to improve quality of life and contribute to the development of sustainable settlements by providing low-income communities with trees to plant at their homes, training, some employment and environmental awareness and contributes to climate mitigation through carbon storage. The programme was awarded the Mail & Guardian Investing in the Future Award and won the Institute of Housing Gauteng of Housing Gauteng and National Award.

Urban Greening Fund
Urban Greening Fund is a basket fund that supports partnerships for sustainable development through tree planting, parks and food gardening projects, as well as environmental awareness and education.

The Carbon Standard
In 2006 the Carbon Standard was launched along with the first ever South African carbon calculator on FTFA's website in a partnership with InteractiveAfrica and Edward Nathan Sonnenberg. This encouraged several companies and individuals to start offsetting their carbon emissions through FTFA's tree planting programmes.

Amazing soap. We only use this product it is by far my favourite. To help it last longer push a metal beer top into the bottom for it to rest on. This way you will be able to use every last bit.
