Beyond Subsistence is a non-profit organisation that undertakes forestry and agroforestry development.

Many of the world’s poorest people are subsistence farmers - they live on what they grow from year to year. Sadly, poor crop yields or crop failure can lead to malnutrition or starvation. Trees are an essential ingredient for subsistence farmers to break the poverty cycle. The integration of trees into farming environments can replenish soils, provide nutritious seed for food, fuel for cooking and valuable timber for building.

Our focus on forestry and agroforestry is designed to bring about long-term, sustainable improvements in the areas of farm productivity, nutrition, housing, community wealth and the environment.

Together, we can help move some of the world’s poorest Beyond Subsistence
